Universal Junior Tennis Circuit

     We are excited to announce that we will be hosting our second Universal Tennis Junior Circuit Tournament! The next event is September 23-25 SWITA - Fall Junior Circuits Qualifier for players with a UTR 3.0-6.99. Register by going to www.universaltennis.com/junior-circuits. The circuit calendar consists of various qualifier events at different clubs in the area. Each season (Spring, Summer, Fall) concludes with a District tournament in which the Season Champion is crowned. There will be a State tournament at the end of the year as well to determine the 2022 State Champions per UTR division. Juniors with UTRs 1-2.99, 3-4.99, and 5-6.99 will be grouped together in level-based draws. All players will be guaranteed at least two matches. This is a fun pathway in which qualifying for Districts/States is dependent on the number of “qualifier” tournaments played in a Season. Please register ASAP and ensure a spot in the tournament and view further event details!  If you have questions, please contact Luis Ridaura at luis@goldkeyracquetclub.com
