Junior ranking

Junior girls and boys (Under 18) are now ranked based on their combined junior and senior ranking points. The junior ranking points are earned at selected junior events while the senior ranking is made up of points earned on the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Tour, based on the official ITF Wheelchair Tennis Ranking for men and women.

From 2012 there will be a greater range of Junior tournaments on theĀ circuit with a select number of 'Grade A' tournaments which carry greater ranking points than other events on the circuit. The Junior Masters will remain as the most important event of the year and is held in Tarbes, France, inviting the top ranked boys and girls.
