Key Dates – Season #2  2020

The Super 10s is a competition for the up and coming 10 and under tennis players within Tasmania. Those players who register will attend a Challenge Day where they will compete against other players in their respective age group where Tennis Australia staff and additional managers will evaluate their eligibility on the day. From the Challenge Day and from recent tournament/competition results 24 players (Hobart) & 16 players (Launceston & North-West Coast) will be selected to compete in the Super 10’s season. These players will be placed in to teams of four, be assigned a Tennis Australia qualified coach/team manager (who will be on court to support them throughout the competition) and will compete in a round robin format against the other teams respectively. Played with green ball, this competition allows the best 10/u athletes in the state to come together and receive quality matchplay against their peers. They have the opportunity to compete in a team and receive advice and support from their team manager.
