Below are some important play aspects and formatting guidelines for Future Stars:

  • Events are one-day sanctioned tournaments for players ages 8-14 (USTA membership not required)

  • Matches are played in accordance with the six respective elements for Red, Orange, and Green Ball Tennis

  • Offers a Red Ball division for 8s players to introduce them to the basics of competition

  • Offers both Orange and Green Ball divisions for 10s players of all technical abilities and skill levels

  • Offers a Green Ball Novice division that best applies to beginners ages 11-14

    • ​​A novice player is a participant who is new to tournaments or match play and who has limited experience, ability, and/or understanding of the game

Future Stars tournaments are the perfect starting point, as they are designed to give players a taste of competitive tennis in a fun, inviting, and welcoming environment. Particularly for players with little tournament experience, these one-day tournaments offer an opportunity to compete, meet other players, and start building tournament skills!
