Are you this demanding in RL as well?

Hi - the LTA site has the following, if it helps...

About mini tennis competition

Competitions to enter

You need to log in to the site you can enter tournaments online. Also, I think some clubs have mini tennis tournaments that you can enter through the organiser but I may be wrong! (DC out of the juniors now and mini tennis comps weren't around when they were little.)

Good luck - we found each stage took some figuring out but once you start doing it, it makes a lot more sense.

It's my oldest! She is 10yrs! It's not a pressure but coach keeps telling me she should start competing and I don't have any idea how to enrole her! Don't want to ask coach because I feel really silly that I can't find much info!!! Thank you !!!!

YouStayClassySanDiego Mon 19-Aug-13 15:56:24

Ask the coach, that's his job.

Don't feel silly about it.
