Overview

The National Training Squad – Futures (NTS-Futures) program caters for the best 8, 9, and 10 year old juniors in Hong Kong.  The Futures program underpins the NTS 12U program. Players are prepared for both green ball tennis (Novice tournaments) and Junior Series events.

The program has a lower coach player ratio and includes extra fitness training and individual attention for each player. Players are monitored and assessed throughout the year.

 

Selection

To enrol in the NTS-Futures, players MUST pass an assessment conducted by the HKTA coaches; assessing technical, tactical and physical components of the player’s game. Formal NTS-Futures Assessment Days will be conducted for players aged 9 to 10.  Results and rankings from the Junior Novice Competition will also be taken into consideration.

2021/2022 Assessment for players aged 10 or under is scheduled on 11th July and  25th July 2021 (Sundays). The fallback day is on 22nd August 2021 (Sunday).
