For the 18th consecutive year in San Diego, tennis legend Billie Jean King will host the WTT Junior Nationals — an event King created.

As in recent years, this event will take place at the Barnes Tennis Center in Point Loma from July 29–Aug. 1.

Two features make this junior tennis tournament different from many others.

First of all, it is more than a tournament. There are workshops, seminars, on-court practice sessions and other educational opportunities for participants — all of which King plays a very active, hands-on role in.

Second, like the WTT format, which King also created, the event is an invitational team format. Specifically, there are 16 co-ed teams representing various United States Tennis Association (USTA) sections from around the U.S. Ages are 14-18 and team selection is in partly based on a player not earning a USTA ranking from 1-150.

The Barnes Tennis Center is located at 4490 W. Point Loma Blvd. For more information, call (619) 221-9000.

Parking and admission are free for the event.

All seminars, workshops and practice sessions are limited to tournament participants.
