Q How important is the Junior Challenge competition to the IC Family?
A It is the International Club's premier tennis event for juniors, split into regional qualifying in odd years and the worldwide finals in even years. It has been running now for 10 years and it consistently attracts many of the top junior players in the world. It is very important to us. There are no junior members of any IC Club in the world and this event requires close liaison between ICs and their respective tennis federations. Read more...

TENNIS CLINIC KICK STARTS THE IC JUNIOR CHALLENGE TENNIS CLINIC KICK STARTS THE IC JUNIOR CHALLENGE
The 2014 IC U16 Junior Challenge Worldwide Finals kicked off with a clinic for local state primary school children yesterday. In glorious sunshine the clinic was run by Dan Bloxham, the Head Coach at The AELTC, and Barry Cowan a former professional player and currently a TV commentator for Sky Sports.

It provided the perfect opportunity to introduce children from less privileged backgrounds to tennis, and a wonderful opportunity for competitors at the Junior Challenge to give something back to the game.
