Where are your favorite junior tournaments and why?

What tournaments would you recommend in your section for juniors from other sections?

Use whatever criteria you want - things that I care about our the venue, organization, and side attractions.

Just looking to put a little fun into the game ; )

Sectionals are good b/c you can compare yourself to the best in the section. However, i think they're closed off to non-residents, not sure.

My favorites are at FIU(Miami) because they are close by and I play there, at Frank Veltri(clay court tennis center in plantation) where i won my consolation trophy without playing one consolation match :), and Heinser tennis center(Kendall) which is owned by this really nice german guy, the facilities there are great, the trophies are also really cool 0_0.

BTW I live in Miami

i live in canada, so our whole tournament set up system thing is alot different then you guys in the states. anyway my favorite tournament would be South Shore Junior Regional, i like it because the courts are very nice, nice club and its a very quiet place

thats not always true... bigger tournaments might have more of ur friends competing in it, for example i hate playing in finals cuz its usually just my family and my opponents. cuz i play better with more people watching

Zonals for sure. Hanging out with all the kids from your section is fun and you get some tough matches. My favorite zonals is probably 16's in salt lake.

Well, my favorite tournament is the National Open, Sectionals and the Spring Super Nationals. The bigger the tournament the more is at stake and more people are surrounding you and watching. I play the 12's age group and I am from the East. We ROCK!!!
