Universal Tennis Junior National Pathway Road to Nationals (Part 4)
The inaugural Universal Tennis Junior Nationals and College Showcase are now in the rearview – what a phenomenal 5 days of Junior Tennis! (To read my earlier articles on the Pathway, click here to read Part 1, click here to read Part 2, and click here to read Part 3.) I had the pleasure of attending both the Showcase and Championships and can’t wait to share my thoughts with you.
Let’s start with the College Showcase . . . as mentioned in previous articles in this series, the Showcase was scheduled to coincide with the ITA Annual Coaches Convention to make it easy for the college coaches to come watch current high school age players in action. Since COVID has dramatically impacted the coaches’ travel budgets at most colleges and universities, it was great to see Universal Tennis step up and create this unique opportunity for both the players and coaches.
