    Created as per:

    As many of you have noticed, the Junior forum has been removed. Discussions regarding junior training, USTA rules and other junior development threads should now be directed to the Tips/Instruction section.

    We will no longer allow the discussion of any specific junior players. Any threads/posts regarding specific junior players will be removed. Persistence in posting the names of juniors can lead to your account being banned.

    Thank you,
    Talk Tennis Admin

    The forum was not removed because a few people were spamming. There were some serious issues, privacy prime among them, that led to its closure.

    Happy with decision to close junior thread. Besides the issues stated, there was much misinformation that could be harmful and even dangerous to juniors. I think TW made the responsible and correct move. Thanks TW.

    So there can be no mention of any jrs at all, by name???

    So for instance, the USTA Spring tournament going on in Carson at the moment, we cant comment on which player just beat another player???

    I recently discovered what happened to the forum, and I'm a bit upset. But anyways I guess I'll post here since I can't use the that section!

    Hey everyone! I'm planning on playing tourney's next year and would like some advice in beginning my junior career. How do I start exactly?...

    If you want anymore background to aid in your advice I'll be happy to try to answer any specific questions that I'm comfortable answering.

    Hey man, I am wrapping up my jr career and looking to play D1 college - so I have gone through everything from the low state tournaments to nationals. Any specific questions you have I should be able to help you out. What age group are you going to be playing in? Also if you would be more comfortable shooting me an email that works too.
