South Australia

Summer Season  2021/22

The Super 10s is a competition for the up and coming 10 and under tennis players within South Australia. 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. There are also two JDS events outlined below that players are encouraged to participate in as further opportunities for green ball matchplay. From the challenge day, the two JDS events and from recent tournament/competition results 16 girls and 16 boys will be selected to compete in the Super 10’s season. These players will be placed in to teams of four, be assigned a team manager who will be on court to support them throughout the competition, and will compete in a round robin format against the other three teams of the same gender. Played with green ball, this competition allows the best 10 year olds 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 throughout. For the players who aren’t selected this time around, there will also be super 10’s training opportunities throughout the term.

Key Dates

(Please note that these dates have been chosen to work around all AR and JDS offerings to ensure as many players as possible are available to compete, as well as to afford players the opportunity to play in all competitions.
