Junior Development Series

JDS finals

The Junior Development Series (JDS) allows young tennis players to compete and develop their skills before entering into the next stage of development. The JDS tournaments are an important stage of development as it allows the players to compete in a fun and competitive environment.

The State Finals will be held in Rockhampton on the 17th/18th October 2015. In total 16 players will be selected to compete against other regions in Queensland to ultimately be crowned JDS State Champions.

In 2015, the Junior Development Series will host Red ball, Orange Ball and Green ball to allow for ANZ Tennis Hotshot participants to compete against people outside of their local clubs. This will create a better pathway and a positive transition into full size and regular ball play. For more details on ANZ Tennis Hotshots please click here.

Junior Development Series 2015

$45 for singles and doubles (for all yellow ball events), $35 for singles and doubles (for all coloured ball events).
