Will there still be a Summer and Winter competition season?
Once the changes have been introduced we will move away from having a separate Summer and Winter season calendar’. The 2019 Winter season will run as normal from 1st September - 31st March and a calendar will then be planned for the remainder of 2020. From 2021 there will be no specific competition seasons with competitions planned around a calendar year like the professional tours.
The age group changes will coincide with the launch of a new National Competition Calendar, including a revitalised Junior National Championships which will have a new position in the calendar. This will ensure our national domestic competitions support the Performance Pathway and can be reinvigorated as a crucial step on the journey to international tennis.
