In early 2016, tournaments previously known as Zonal Area Tournaments (ZAT) were renamed. They are now referred to as Challenger tournaments.
Challenger 10s tournaments are entry-level tournaments that count towards USTA Texas Youth Progression. Challenger-level players competing in 10s divisions are limited to one Challenger each month. Unlike 12s-18s, the Challenger 1-Day tournament is the only traditional format offered for Challenger 10s events.
Why Youth Progression?
Players should advance through the various stages with the understanding that this is not a race to Yellow Ball, but a process rich in development opportunities at each stage.
Youth Progression encourages players to set quantifiable and achievable goals at each stage of the beginning of their junior tournament careers and will equip players with a goal setting mindset to carry throughout their lives.
