The first national champions for 16 months will be crowned this weekend at the Mark Bates Ltd U10-U13 National Championships.
The University of Warwick is the venue for the event, which will be held under covid protocols, including restricted spectating and no doubles events.
It will be the first nationals to be held since the senior version which finished on March, 2019.
Boys and Girls will compete across two days – the Under-11 and Under-13 categories are on Saturday and the Under-10 and Under-12s on Sunday.
The full programme, including draws and table times and numbers, can be downloaded at the foot of this page.
With the last edition of this event being held two years ago, there are no defending champions in any of the categories. However, all four Under-10 and Under-11 champions from 2019 – Ralph Pattison and Mia Longman (U11) and Kacper Piwowar and Sienna Jetha (U10) – will be returning to compete at higher age groups.
We will be live streaming selected matches over the course of the weekend on the recast app. Two streams will run concurrently for the boys and girls matches on both the Saturday and Sunday.
