3-4 years ago, my son played tournament almost every weekend. Our purpose was simply to improve his game by playing matches. He played over 200 USTA matches a year 2010-2011. He also played over 20 ladder matches against adults in our club. It's a lot cheaper to play tournament (especially if he gets to play on Sunday) than clinics. He plays about 20 tournaments a year now.
