It’s a lot to ask a young person to jump from entry-level tennis to the provincial competitive junior circuit. The Rogers Rookie Tour makes that jump more of a step, allowing children to play competitive tennis at an introductory level.

Tennis Manitoba has several Rogers Rookie Tour events on its 2013 schedule, which creates a player-friendly environment for children to be introduced to competition at a level suitable for their age and understanding. The matches are played with slower red, orange or green balls on smaller courts, using modified scoring. It is a fun way to start tennis and makes it easy for children to play the game, develop good technique and tactics and a love for the sport.

When sports are easier to learn, kids have more fun, gain confidence, and are more likely to continue to play. The Rogers Rookie Tour is a great place to start the passion for tennis that can last a lifetime.
