League Information:

The Gateway Junior Grand Prix is a circuit of tennis tournaments geared towards the recreational player. The circuit consists of a series of single-​day round robin tournaments. The tournaments will be held at ​Clayton Shaw Park.

Also, when you pick up your shirt, you may enter in a drawing to win a $100 Racketman gift certificate!

Player Eligibility:

Players who have received a final, year-end USTA District ranking in the top ten are disqualified from playing the circuit. However, these top ten players may play two age divisions higher if one exists. Boys who have received a USTA District ranking of #11 thru #20 can play, but must play one age division higher. Final, year-end USTA rankings which are published during the Gateway season are not considered – only published rankings before the season begins.

Getting Started:

Before entering tournaments, players must register to play in the league. To do this, the League Registration Form must be filled out and submitted online, and an annual $40 League Fee must be paid. **If you paid for the Gateway League Season 2014-2015, you are allowed a coupon code to discount the summer league fee.

Entering Tournaments:

Once a player is registered to play in the league, that player can begin entering tournaments through our online system. The fee is $35 per event.

Players may withdraw from an event for any reason (injury, schedule conflict, etc) with a partial refund if they withdraw before the entry deadline, which is the Friday before the event at Noon. To withdraw, you must log into the the tournament system (at and click on "My Schedule" and click on the red "Withdraw" button next to the tournament from which you wish to withdraw. No other method of withdrawing from an event will be considered. Players will be refunded $27.50 when they withdraw from an event prior to the deadline.

​Tournament Format:

Every tournament will use a round-robin format where the participants will play four different opponents. During these four rounds, a total of five games will be played, each time using no-ad scoring. ​​After the four rounds, the top four finishers in terms of total games won will go into the playoffs. In the playoffs, a full set will be played with the score starting at two games all. The #1 seed will play against the #4 seed, and the #2 seed will play against the #3 seed. The two winners will then play for the championship, and the losers will play each other for third place. The championship round will again be a set starting at two games all, and the third place round will simply involve the playing of a Super-Tiebreaker to 10 points. In the 10-and-under divisions, only Super-Tiebreakers to ten points will be played. Tournaments generally take about three hours to complete. Players can be defaulted if they are 20 or more minutes late after the check-in time listed.
