2016 Stripes Junior Grand Prix Tournament Circuit Kicks Off at Al Kruse Tennis Center
The USPTA Jr Grand Prix Circuit, sponsored locally by Stripes, kicked off its 2016 season at Al Kruse Tennis Center on March 18-20. Despite some challenging weather, Todd Norton (tournament director) and Susan Torrance (Director of Tennis at Al Kruse) managed to pull off a successful tournament.
The Grand Prix Circuit is an excellent opportunity for juniors to get some great playing opportunities and earn points toward a trip to sectionals at John Newcombe’s Tennis Ranch in New Braunfels on September 16-18, 2016. The top two singles points winners in each age division will be invited to participate on the team that travels to the Championships. All players who attend the Championships must be non-Qualified (not Champs or Super Champ players).
Below are listed the winners in each division. Congratulations to all and good luck to all of the players in the next scheduled Grand Prix at Rockport Country Club, April 16-17. See the schedule and last year’s top point winners on our Jr Grand Prix pages (under Youth Tennis).
