Play Your Way to Wimbledon

Play Your Way to Wimbledon

Play Your Way to Wimbledon (previously called the "Road to Wimbledon") is the biggest junior tournament in British tennis and gives all junior players the opportunity to progress through to compete on the world-famous grass courts at Wimbledon.

The first stage of the competition takes place in local clubs, parks and schools and all are encouraged to enter and stage a fun, sociable tournament for their members/pupils who have a World Tennis Number between 20.0 and 40.9.

The big change from 2022 is that whilst the singles competition is still limited to 11 to 14 year-olds, there is now a doubles competition for those players aged between 11 and 18 and one for adults.

The winners of the Single events will progress to their respective County Finals whilst the Doubles winners will progress to a Regional Final.

The winners of each County and Regional Final will be invited to compete on the grass courts at Wimbledon in August at the National Finals.
