JGPT NO LONGER LISTING EVENTS

 

Due to a lack of support JGPT will no longer offer our full-service platform that includes Event Enrollment, Scoring, Advertising, Merchant Charges, etc. All future events, payments, and player registrations must be completed on site and at the JGPT event.

All New Membership accounts still need to use this website for initial one time Membership Registration and to be listed on the Ranking pages (ARC1 Ranking). To find events, players are encouraged to ask their local tennis director for events scheduled in their area. For the few TDs who have used this full-service platform, you will now submit your scores directly to the ARC1 (ARC1Ranking.com). Please contact us for a fee structure.

JGPT IN 18 COUNTRIES

 

JGPT and the ARC1 (ARC1Ranking.com) is the exclusive ranking system for JGPT and has now ranked thousands of players throughout 18 countries. Any event (tournament) in any location can be part of the ARC1/JGPT family and we welcome any and all junior level players around the world to be rated and ranked by the ARC1.

JGPT offers two different and unique ways for an Event Coordinator (EC) AKA Tournament Director (TD) to be part of the ARC1Ranking experience:

1) Simply running your events and submitting the scores. In fact, almost all events rated  by the ARC1 are private JGPT events and not shown on the website. This is mainly due to language barriers and exchange rates in countries outside of the USA as well as private clubs throughout the world.

2) The newest way is to utilize JGPT’s full service website, which includes their software, merchant’s services, marketing and database, and support staff.

Any way you chose, every player rated and ranked must be enrolled as a member of Junior Grand Prix Tennis and the Event Coordinator (EC) must be vetted and approved by the JGPT Board.

JGPT INCREASES AGES TO 25

8 WEEKS TTT

 

JGPT is proud to partner our Platform of Simplicity (POS) with Dave Archer's "8 weeks to Tournament Tennis". These combined methodologies and systems allow a structure for children as young as six to form clear and concise goals and playing progressions. These philosophies assist Players, Parents and Coaches in understanding the proper fundamentals of the sport while promoting retention, as well as other benefits. In addition, these great rudiments foster a "Fun and Fair" tournament playing experience that all will enjoy at every JGPT Event.

RULES QUIZ?

 

You hit a first serve into the net. The ball then rolls out six feet from the net on your side, and you leave it there. You get your second serve in, and in the middle of that point, your opponent hits a short shot that lands on the ball you left there, bouncing sideways so as to make it unplayable. What's the result?

1. You win the point.
2. You lose the point.
3. You replay the point.
4. You only replay the point if you would have had a play on the ball had it not hit the other ball.

You serve the first game of the first set in a doubles match. Your team wins the set 6-2. Who serves the first game of the second set?

1. You.
2. Your Partner.
3. One of your opponents.
4. Either you or your partner: The two of you can choose.

Answer to question 1) is (2) Answer to question 2) is (4)
