The Rogers Rookie Tour is a national program designed to bridge the gap between entry-level tennis and the provincial competitive junior circuit. Launched in 2009, Rogers Rookie Tours have reached thousands of juniors each year at tennis clubs and community venues throughout the country. Last year over 5,000 boys and girls across the country competed in over 300 events. The Rogers Rookie Tour encourages players to continue through the tennis pathway to become regular competitors and/or lifelong tennis enthusiasts.
Boys and girls up to the age of 18 are eligible to play in Rogers Rookie Tour events. All events on the Rogers Rookie Tour are non-elimination tournaments. These events offer unranked or lower-ranked youngsters a fun-filled and exciting experience with multiple opportunities to play. Each player is guaranteed a minimum of three matches.

It’s a lot to ask a young person to jump from entry-level tennis to the provincial competitive junior circuit. The Rogers Rookie Tour makes that jump more of a step, allowing junior players to play competitive tennis at an introductory level. Some of these young faces may be ones to watch in the years to come, while countless others will also triumph just because they’ve discovered a passion that will be with them for a lifetime.
