USTA Missouri Valley
Please see the junior competition changes made by the Junior Competition Committee in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Junior tennis tournaments are the perfect opportunity to take your game to the next level. Perhaps you want to begin your playing career as an entry-level player and compete your way up to national level tournaments, or you may be a more recreational player who just plays a few friendly tennis tournaments a weekend near your hometown. No matter which level you desire, there’s a tournament for you. We offer several formats of tournaments, too:
• Round robin
• Feed-in championships
• Team events for you to compete in across our five-state area.
This variety allows our next generation of tennis players to compete in a way that makes them feel comfortable, matches their level of play and helps them to experience success.ADVERTISEMENT
Once you have determined you want to try a junior tournament, you can use the USTA's online searchable calendar to quickly view tournaments in a variety of USTA Missouri Valley locations near you. In this window, you can filter by entry level tennis events as well as by your district and/or zip code to view a listing of tournaments in your area. Most tournaments that are entry level will be non-elimination formats and will not count for a ranking. They are designed for players interested in testing the waters with tournament play.

The USTA Missouri Valley follows the USTA Missouri Valley Junior Tournament Rules and Regulations and USTA Friend at Court at all USTA Missouri Valley tournaments. Please see the 2020 Junior Points Table in addition to the rules and regulations as well.
The Junior Competition Committee is the group responsible for implementing policy at junior section events. The Committee is comprised of a Chair and a representative from each district. For questions or concerns with junior policy, please contact your local representative and/or the section office.
If you have any questions about junior tennis tournaments in your area, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your local organizer. Each district has its own staff and website where information can be found on junior competition that is taking place in your area.
These documents will be used at all section and national events:
