I thought it was great idea too. What you are doing is taking the top few hundred U10s in the country and placing them in a very competive but structured environment where their strategic tennis skills can be developed in a fair way.
And while you can play all the practice matches you like and get coached on strategy it just isn't the same as when it is done at a proper tournament played against a large number of high quality opponents. Something that usually you never get a chance to do (and rightly so).
