Future Stars Circuit

The Future Stars Circuit provides young Canadian tennis players (ages 7 to 10) with an opportunity to play competitive tennis in a fun environment. Last year approximately 1,000 boys and girls across the country competed in almost 450 events. Future Stars events are the perfect opportunity for young tennis players to improve their skills and make new friends. The Future Stars circuit is designed to provide a tournament format where kids get multiple meaningful matches in a short block of time thereby making it convenient for families.

To create a healthy and positive competitive environment, the Future Stars Circuit Leaderboards are designed to reward participation as well as performance. Points are awarded in three different ways:

  1. Participation Points: Points are awarded for each tournament a player competes in
  2. Bonus Participation Points: One-time bonus points are awarded to players at the end of the year if they have played in 10 or more Future Stars tournaments. Please note that players are eligible for these points only if all 10 events are from the same age category (U9 or U10)
  3. Tournament Points: Points are awarded for wins and ties

To find out the number of points awarded under each category please visit your province’s Future Stars page.

Each province maintains 4 leaderboards: Boys U9, Girls U9, Boys U10 and Girls U10. At the end of the year, the top 5 players on each leaderboard are given prizes. Unique player gifts are given to all players. The PTAs distribute the gifts to the players throughout the year.
