Tennis Europe Junior Tour Structure
Events for Individuals
After playing national junior events in their home countries, talented young players can proceed to compete internationally, on the Tennis Europe Junior Tour. Players begin their pathway with Category 3 events and work their way up to competing at Super Category tournaments (likened to the 'grand slams' of the 14 & Under circuit), the European Championships or the Junior Masters.
Two team events also exist for the top players from each age category (12, 14, 16 & Under): the Tennis Europe Winter Cups and Summer Cups. These events are where many future Davis and Billie Jean King Cup champions earned a first taste of team competition. The 14 & Under events serve as the European qualifying for the ITF World Junior Tennis tournament, while the 16 & Under events are the European qualifying for the Junior Davis and Billie Jean King Cups.
