New Delhi, India, 4 May 2022 | tennis.com.au

Australia’s top 16-and-under boys and girls and 14-and-under girls are set to compete against the world’s best in the prestigious Junior Davis Cup Finals, Junior Billie Jean King Cup Finals and World Junior Tennis Finals after qualifying in the Asia/Oceania lead-in tournaments in New Delhi, India last month.

The World Junior Tennis Finals will be held from 1-6 August in Prostejov, Czech Republic before the Junior Billie Jean King Cup and Junior Davis Cup take place from 1-6 November in Antalya, Turkey. Sixteen nations will compete in each competition as they vie for the top honours in junior team tennis.

“Congratulations to all our Aussie junior teams who fought so hard and played so well to qualify at the Asia/Oceania qualifying ties in India last month,” said Tennis Australia Director of Professional Tennis Paul Kilderry.

“With international competition for our junior players severely reduced over the past two years it’s wonderful to see our young players bond together in their teams, to compete so well and experience some great success on the court, resulting in reaching the prestigious finals.

“We look forward to supporting each team leading into and during their competitions over the coming months.”
