Medibank Junior Development Series 2016
The Medibank Junior Development Series 2016 is an important program in the player development pathway on the Sunshine Coast. This series enables developing players to participate and compete in both singles and doubles. These tournaments are designed to introduce juniors into entry level tournaments.
Coordinated by the Sunshine Coast Regional Tennis Assembly, Tennis Queensland and proudly sponsored by Medibank, the series features ten tournaments stretching from Gympie to Caboolture.
Each event in the series features an 8/U Orange Ball Challenge which utlizes a 50% compression ball and 10/U Green Ball Challenge which uses 75% compression to maximise rally length, court craft, swing patterns and increase fun. All players receive a certificate of participation.
Other divisions include 11/U, 13/U, 15/U and 17/U. These players are eligible to compete in the Medibank JDS 2016 points race which is a key determinant in regional representation at the Junior Development Series Finals in Rockhampton in October and Queensland Junior Teams Carnival in December.
