Les Petit AS 2013
 
Well, it's that time of year again - anybody heading over to Tarbes for Les Petit AS? Last year you guys had a good showing with all four boys semi-finalists and one of the girls finalists!

cheers

FIVE of the eight top American juniors selected to represent the USA in Europe are HIGH-TECH TENNIS customers! GOOD LUCK TO EVERY SINGLE PLAYER, but most especially these: GIRLS: CC Bellis-CA (since 2011 G12 Hard Courts), Jaeda Daniel-FL (since 2009 FL State Closed 10s), Michaela Gordon-CA (since 2012 G12 Hard Courts) BOYS: Patrick Kypson-NC (since 2009 Southern Closed 10s), Noah Makarome-FL (since 2010 Gator Bowl).

Not anything personally against you at all, but do you have permission from them to use their names? Did they sign something? Not sure appropriate. Knowing two of the players pretty well and how their parents are, just checking. Also know other video services they use, so it could get sticky.....When photographer/video folks use or used my players image or name with their product they always get permission. Marketing 101.

Permission is not required to use a player's name in a post. It happens here every day. TennisRecruiting.net has player profiles with names and pictures on public display. zootennis writes about it every day and snaps pictures of kids at tournaments without any release being signed. It comes with the territory.

Could not agree more, JM is a beast, only thinking is he is 14.... Those are all 13 year olds

Unless that post can be construed as advertising different rules apply to that.

JM is a player, big off both sides. Wonder if he is an aging out 14 or a young 14.

How is CC Bellis doing? Saw her play this summer, really nice girl. My 8 year old daughter fell in love with her, couldn't stop talking about her for a couple of weeks.

But I think permission or good taste is required before advertising that a minor is a customer. The post has been made, each of us can form our own opinions about the vendor

It's an excellent tournament, feels very much like a festival of tennis with the way the venue is laid out.

Thanks for chiming in NOLA. If he was in the age group, he would've been given the opportunity to earn a spot to go just as the others did.

ac10splyr 01-10-2013 04:54 PM

wait he is a 98' but doesnt age out til october....so you cant age out the year of the tournament at all? or just have to be 14 and under during?

ITF rules go by birth year
