Welcome to the
Rogers Rookie Tour, a national program that bridges
the gap between entry-level tennis and the provincial
competitive junior circuit.
It’s a lot to ask a young person to jump from entry-level tennis to the provincial competitive junior circuit. The Rogers Rookie Tour makes that jump more of a step, allowing children to play competitive tennis at an introductory level.
The Rogers Rookie Tour events create a player-friendly environment for children to be introduced to competition at a level suitable for their age and understanding. The matches are played with
slower red, orange or green balls on
smaller courts, using
modified scoring. It is a fun way to start tennis and makes it easy for children to play the game, develop good technique and tactics and a love for the sport.
