The competition will be run as per ITF rules but with some small amendments to accommodate age and competitor level.
Pre-Juniors (up to 11 years) and will be divided initially by age then grade and height. Juniors (12-14yrs), Teens 15-17 and all Seniors will be categorised initially by age, then grade and weight. It may be the case that we have to merge categories due to the number of competitors.
The Sportdata Online System will allow all instructors to view the categories as they are populated. A list of categories for the event has been enclosed as part of the Invitation.
