The new changes means less tournaments using green for U12 which is why the participation level is so high.
Overall the participation level for the month of january for 10 and under and green ball in U12 in year 2012 has been excellent.
Glad its working some where.
I'm a bit disheartened that the U11 Green Ball is not taking hold. As for the 10U I asked the TD @ Regional about the lack of entrants and he expected it to get worse. Really why I asked: "As it gets Hotter the kids just don't want to play 10U." The kids he is getting for 10U aren't "Tennis Players" they are recreational type campers.
The best part of this is Tennislink will have all the data the various Sections will need to evaluate where the program is succeding and where it needs a boost.
