Prior to entering, all players must register for an International Player Identification Number (IPIN) membership. This alpha numeric identification number is a prerequisite to entering an ITF junior event anywhere in the world.
Tournaments on the ITF Junior Circuit are graded according to the strength of entry, with the most ranking points being awarded for the eight major championships (Group A), which include the four Grand Slam events.
Depending on the level of the event, Player are accepted based on the following:
- ITF Junior World Ranking,
- Professional world ranking (ATP/WTA) and/or,
- USTA Top 200 National Ranking
Players will need an ITF Junior World Ranking to enter Group A, 1, 2, and 3 events, but even entry into Group 4 and 5 events is likely to be based on players' ITF rankings.
