Tie Break Tens (TB10) has partnered with the LTA and the WTA with the shared objective of encouraging participation in tennis as well as increasing awareness of the game amongst the younger female demographic.
We are thrilled to be returning to the UK in Summer 2019 with a bigger and better Challenger Series, aimed primarily at girls aged 14-16.
Following a successful roll-out of the TB10 Challenger Series in 2018, we will return this summer with a nationwide set of tournaments held by tennis clubs across the country. The winner/runner up from each club will head to their regional finals and then onto the UK Final at the National Tennis Centre, Roehampton on Saturday 21st September 2019. The tournaments will be split into 2 age groups, U16 and U14 and open to anyone to take part.
To register your club and for tournament dates please see below.
This year we are excited to announce the winner of each age group in the UK Final, plus a chaperone, will win the opportunity of a lifetime – an all expenses paid trip to Shenzhen, China to take part in the WTA Future Stars programme, a tournament for some of the best young players in Asia; courtesy of our partners, WTA Future Stars.
The winners will receive tennis products and apparel kindly donated by TB10 Challenger partners, adidas & Babolat.
Our winners will play on the same court as the top 8 female players in the world at the WTA Tour Finals this October. There will also be tennis related prizes as well as the prestigious TB10 Challenger trophy.
For taking part in the series, each club will receive:
- A personalised TB10 Tournament Toolkit
- A TB10 winners prize package including exclusive LTA & TB10 swag
- Support and promotion via TB10, LTA & WTA social media pages
