Tennis South Africa and our headline partner, Growthpoint Properties, are delighted to launch the Growthpoint Super 8 Series Race.
The race aims to build our key TSA junior national tournaments (specifically Growthpoint Super 8 events and the Growthpoint Junior Nationals), into a series – in order to recognise the most consistent junior players in South Africa.
The race will cover nine tournaments in total – eight x Growthpoint Super 8 events, as well as the Growthpoint Junior Nationals – played in the period from the 1st December 2017 to the 31st July 2018.
Players will earn race points for rounds reached at the above tournaments. Points are accumulated over the above time period, per age group and per gender. At the end of the designated time period, the player with the most points (per gender and per age group) will win the Series title, as well as some great prizes!
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the late announcement of this concept, the Growthpoint Super 8 Series Race (for 2017/2018) will cover a player’s best 5 results.
The Growthpoint Super 8 Series Race tables for each gender and age group will be published on the second Monday after each relevant tournament.
The race is age specific and so individuals cannot be in the race for two different age categories. In short – if a player plays up, then the points will reflect in that player’s correct age group.
There will be eight series winners and eight series runners up for the following age groups and genders:
The series winners will each win a trophy, a R5000 travel voucher and free entry into all Growthpoint Super 8 events (as well as Nationals) in 2019. The series runners up will each win free entry into all Growthpoint Super 8 events (as well as Nationals) in 2019.
