DESCRIPTION OF EVENTS:
Internal Tennis Events: These are fun events for all the junior members in that age category. It’s
a great opportunity to play tennis with other junior members from Brookfield Tennis Club.
Junior Championships: The Spring and Summer Junior Championships are for all Brookfield
juniors from U10 to U16. They consist of a round robin tournament which means all participants
get to play a number of matches with the winners of each group advancing to the finals on the
Saturday.
Level: All levels Type: Singles, Doubles and Mixed Doubles
Brookfield Junior Open: This is an opportunity for tournament players to challenge the best
players in their age group who will come to Brookfield from all over Ireland. All junior members
will have the opportunity to earn free entry by qualifying through an internal event which gives
players with no tournament experience a chance to test their matchplay ability against their
peers in the club. Players can still enter the Open themselves if they feel that are ready for top
level competition.
Level: Very High / All-Ireland Type: Singles
Phoenix Event: This event is run by Leinster Tennis and is aimed at less experienced tennis
players. In November 2016, Brookfield Tennis Club held its first?Phoenix?Under 12 and 14. From a
club perspective the fact that nineteen of our juniors participated made it a great success.
The event?attracted sixty two players representing nine clubs and the feedback from parents and
players was extremely positive and reflected very favourably on the club.
Level: Intermediate to High Type: Singles
Stars & Stripes: The Stars and Stripes is an event organised each year between the local tennis
clubs to give the children a taste of competitive tennis in a fun and friendly environment. It is a
great opportunity for children to gain experience of match play.
Level: Intermediate to High Type: Doubles
U12 Boys and Girls league: To be eligible for the league, players must be 11 years or under by the
1st January 2019. Selection for this League is undertaken by the coaching staff.
Level: High Type: Doubles
Tennis 10s: This is an interclub singles event for Under 10 boys and girls.
Level: Intermediate Type: Singles
Camps: The Easter and Summer tennis camps in Brookfield are extremely popular, so it advised
to book early. Level: All levels
Supervised Tennis: Supervised tennis takes place during much of the summer holidays for Junior
Members of Brookfield Tennis Club. Exact dates and times will follow shortly. Level: All levels
Understanding tennis age groups: Tennis age is based on a January 1 cutoff. Taking U10 as an
example, the letter “U” stands for “Under”, so “U10” means “Under 10”. For 2019, to be eligible
to play in an U10 event, players must be 9 years or under by the 1st Jan 2019.
Volunteers: We are always looking for parents to help out with a variety of tasks such as
lifts to and from events. If you are free to help out, please
contact juniors@brookfieldtennis.com
