What is a Rogers Rookie Tour Tournament?

Rogers Rookie Tour events are part of a national Tennis Canada program, designed at bridging the gap between entry level tennis and the competitive junior circuit. It consists of a series of non-elimination tournaments, that offer unranked or lower ranked youngsters a fun-filled and exciting event with multiple opportunities to play. Each player is guaranteed a minimum of three matches, in an environment where players can develop and display their tennis and sportsmanship skills while competing against a variety of opponents.

Format

All events in the Rogers Rookie Tour will be run as non-elimination tournaments that allow players of varying abilities to play multiple times regardless of whether they win or lose. All players are guaranteed a minimum of three matches.
