League News: Get Ready To Climb That Ladder

ALTA JCL player

By Gina Woods, Junior Challenge Ladder Vice President

Are you ready for an exhilarating climb up the ALTA Junior Tennis Challenge Ladder this season? From mid-August to early December, it’s all about making the climb. This isn’t just any ladder; it’s a 14-week marathon of matches where you’re in control. Play as many matches as you like when it suits you best. You’ll face off against a diverse range of opponents, including players from different age groups you wouldn’t typically encounter in regular tournament play or high school matches.

But that’s not all! There are prizes and awards up for grabs, adding an extra layer of excitement to every game. Plus, you will be eligible to apply for the prestigious L. Keith Wood Scholarship the year you graduate from high school.

If you’re on the hunt for fierce competition, fun times, and two special events throughout the season, mark July 1st on your calendar when registration opens. Look for all the fresh new details for this year’s Junior Challenge Ladder on our website (altatennis.org) in May. We can’t wait to see you bring your A-game this season!
