Champions Bowl offers British juniors chance of glory on world stage
The UK leg of the renowned Champions Bowl starts on 29th May, 2021 with succesful players being invited to compete at the Grand Final in Croatia
The Champions Bowl was a concept created in 2014 by two Slovakian tennis fanatics who wanted to offer junior players aged 9 – 16 from around the world the chance to compete for impressive prizes aimed at helping motivate these up and coming, young players.
This year, the UK leg of the Champions Bowl is split into two age groups, for children aged 9-12 and 13-16 years old. It takes place at the Tennis Avenue School in New Malden, Surrey from 29th May – 5th June 2021.
Over 35 different countries are holding qualifying tournaments this year with the winners all being invited to compete at the Grand Finals in Umag, Croatia in September later this year.
But to win their place, British juniors must first win their way through the UK leg, which features sponsorships from the likes of Wilson. Tennis Avenue School have also put up an impressive £70,000 training fund to help motivate the junior players.
Meeting like minded players is a key benefit of the champions Bowl as is the chance for coaches of the young players to share learnings and experiences as they watch their pupils compete.
