National USTA has made significant changes to the tournament schedule which have reduced opportunities for many. Meanwhile, the Midwest USTA has responded to the requests of players and parents with several notablechanges: • Midwest now "owns" the elevated tournaments (Levels 1-5); this should ensure more consistent standards for tournaments, including:

• Efforts made to better distribute elevated tournaments (Levels 1-5) geographically (53% in Michigan and Ohio, down from 71%)

• Many more doubles added, most with a one-match consolation
• All are Feed-In Consolation
• Boys and Girls 10s compass draws added

Cary Tennis Center to Host 2009 Southern Jr. Closed 12s PDF  | Print |  E-mail

The Cary Tennis Center has been selected to host the 2009 Southern Junior Closed for the Boy’s and Girl’s 12s age division. The other facilities in consideration were very strong contenders, making the competition tough for Cary Tennis Park to win this bid. The Southern Junior Closed events are a prestigious honor for players selected to compete as well as for the facilities selected to host. This will be the first Southern Junior Closed championship held in North Carolina.

The Southern Junior Closed Championships hold events for the 10s-18s age groups. Each age division’s championship is held at a different site around the USTA Southern Section. The 12s, for which Cary was selected, has historically been held in Columbia, SC and run by now retired Tournament Director Bernie McGuire. The Cary Tennis Park was a great choice to keep this wonderful event’s history going strong.

In order for North Carolina players to be considered for play in the Southern Junior Closed Championships, they must first participate in the Tar Heel Qualifier held in Winston-Salem every summer.
