Tennis Australia and Tennis Queensland run a variety of Junior and Open tournaments throughout the year.
Category: Junior Development Series
The Junior Development Series is a group of tournaments for beginner to intermediate players. If you are playing regular fixture tennis – the Junior Development Series is for you. The JDS sits under the Optus Junior Tour in the competition pathway and is designed to give players their first experience in playing a series of tournaments throughout the year.
Optus Junior Tour
The OJT is an umbrella tour that provides a clear competitive pathway for aspiring tennis players. In 2012, the OJT tournament structure will change. The OJT tournaments offer Australian Ranking points across 5 levels, Platinum (also known as the Optus National Junior Championships), Gold, Silver, Bronze and White.
These tournaments offer points across the 12/u, 14/u and 16/u age groups, with select tournaments also offering points in the 18/u age group. In total, 211 tournaments across Australia will make up the Optus Junior Tour in 2012, giving all juniors the opportunity to obtain an Australian Ranking.
Australia Money Tournament (AMT)
AMTs are semi-professional tournaments introduced by Tennis Australia in 2006. They are designed to create quality matchplay opportunities and help with the transition for post junior athletes.
In 2010, the National Open Tournament brand was phased out and re-branded as a tiered circuit of AMT’s – Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and White – based on prizemoney levels offered to the open events. To allow for the preservation and integrity of the brand and to provide product consistency to the consumer, a set of controlled delivery requirements has been aligned to each tier.
