Tennis Europe Nations Challenge by HEAD

The Tennis Europe Nations Challenge by HEAD was launched in 2007 in response to popular demand from member nations for a European team championship event for the 12 & Under age group.

The event takes place on clay courts in late July and early August, and follows a format similar to the other European junior team events, with a qualifying competition held at four venues for boys and four venues for girls, from each of which two teams advance to the final rounds. Both the qualifying and final rounds feature eight teams playing each other in a round-robin format over four days.

2019 Tennis Europe Nations Challenge by HEAD 

Russia (girls) and Czech Republic (boys) are the new champions of the Tennis Europe Nations Challenge by HEAD. This was the Czechs’ third appearance in a boys’ final, and first win, while the Russian girls extend their tally to six titles from twelve editions of the 12 & Under team competition. The Russian boys also fared well, finishing as runners-up to the Czechs, while Slovakia were the girls’ finalists.

The final rounds were held in France, with the boys’ teams travelling to Dijon, while the girls played in Ajaccio. A total of 61 national teams took part in the qualifying competition.
