Who will win the "Little Mo" Slam in 2017 and win the tallest trophy in junior tennis - 6' tall!

Congratulations to four players who are still in the runnning for the 2017 "Little Mo" Slam! Stacey Samonte, Natalie Oliver, Akasha Urhobo, and Dominick Mosejczuk. This exciting challenge was created in honor of Maureen "Little Mo" Connolly's winning the Grand Slam (1953). It is the ultimate challenge to win the "Little Mo" Slam. The winner of the Slam will receive a 6' tall trophy for their accomplishment. This is the tallest trophy ever given in junior tennis. We wish all players good luck in their quest to win the tallest trophy in 2017. The "Little Mo" Slam will continue in 2018 in California, New York, and Florida, and we hope you will plan to play the "Little Mo" International tournaments for a chance to win a 6' trophy. The "Little Mo" International tournaments are open to any player from the United States and worldwide ages 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12. Only the yellow ball divisions are eligible to win The "Little Mo" Slam. Eligibility for The 2018 "Little Mo" Slam is as follows: 12s - born in 2006, 11's - born in 2007, 10's - born in 2008, 9's - born in 2009, 8's - born in 2010 or 2011. Maureen "Little Mo" Connolly was the first woman to win the Grand Slam in 1953 - winning all four major tournaments in one calendar year (Australian, French, Wimbledon and U.S. Open). She is still the only American woman and the youngest (age 18) to have accomplished this magnificent feat. We wish you good luck in trying to win The "Little Mo" Slam!
