The Super 10s is a competition for the best 10 and under tennis players in the state of WA. The competition commences with a Challenge Day where children are evaluated by managers on court. From the Challenge Day and from recent tournament results, the best 16 boys and 16 girls are selected and these players are divided into 4 teams of 4 players. The teams are assigned a team manager who will be on court with them throughout the season to provide advice and support.
There are 3 round robin matches and one final match for placings. There are two seasons a year with the first season to be played in Term 1/2 and the second season to be played in Term 3/4.
Due to COVID-19, our Super 10s season has been disturbed. However, we plan to have a season in Term 4 at this moment. Dates below. Please keep a close eye on this page for additional updates.
Players thinking about registering for the Challenge Day should consider the following before signing up for the Day.
The athlete should be able to:
- Rally at least 15 shots up and down the middle of the court.
- Serve with a variety of spin and pace.
- Be competent at hitting slice and topspin.
- Be able to move the ball around the court with purpose.
- Have a good attitude on court by showing respect to the game and to their opponent.
- Players should have competitive experience using a green ball.
In addition to the Challenge Day, players will be selected based on results in tournaments and results in league matches. Players who do not compete in either league matches or tournaments will not be considered for the Super 10s competition.
Please Note: Athletes are able to apply for Super 10s from the 2012– 2010 birth years provided they do not turn 11 before the final round in their environment.
i.e. athletes must be 10 years or younger for the entirety of the season. In Western Australia, this means the athlete’s 11th birthday cannot fall on or before the 21st of November 2020 to be eligible for Super 10s in Term 4 2020.
