Nike Transition Tour Events

The Nike Transition Tour Circuit continues with 2 stops this weekend; ACE @ Hillfield Strathallan College in Hamilton and Perth Tay Tennis Club in Perth. Over 60 U12 and U14 players will be battling in out in singles action.

The Nike Transition Tour Circuit is a 2-star series that was created to allow players in the early stages of their competitive career to test their skills against players of a similar level. It is open to all players in the U12 or U14 categories who are ranked below the top 30 in their age group. The Circuit will continue all summer with a Masters’ final planned in September for the top 16 in each age category. Watch out for an updated leaderboard after this weekend’s tournaments!
