Further your Junior career, start playing tournaments that matter. So you can be ready for the Transition Tour.
ITL regularly conducts "Road to ITF" tournaments using the same rules as ITF tournaments. We also award winners flight fare and entry fee to any ITF tournament in India, on meeting min. draw size.
If you want to get serious about your tennis career these are the type of events you need to play in order to get your game to a level where you can compete with the Top 100 Juniors in the world, and be one of them.
ITL is also building a network with international tournament organizers to provide Wild Cards for ITF Junior tournaments around the world. We have successfully received Wild Cards for a few players this year, and can't wait to work on your behalf to get you one as well.
For Juniors who have the passion to continue studies, but can't put their racket down, we understand. Which is why we have started the process of building up relationships with Universities and Colleges in the USA which offer Sport Scholarships for talented tennis players.
The first thing coaches and colleges consider for a scholarship is a UTR ranking. Build your ranking today, by playing our UTR powered events.
