The "Road to the Little Mo Nationals" is a fun, yearlong circuit of sectional, regional, and national tournaments for talented, high-performance players living in the United States. It is designed to provide good competition while also encouraging players to develop new friendships, learn good sportsmanship, and most of all, have fun. The “Little Mo” is also unique in that it gives youngsters the opportunity to gauge their ability against players who are their same age (8’s play 8’s, 9’s play 9’s, et cetera).

 

Yellow ball divisions will be offered for boys and girls ages 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 in addition to a green dot option for ages 8, 9, and 10 at the sectional level. The top eight players (quarterfinalists) from each age division at each sectional will advance to the four "Little Mo" Regionals. Please note the top 8 players from the yellow ball and green dot divisions will advance to the “Little Mo” Regionals, but all green dot players will need to play with the yellow ball at the Regionals as there will be no green dot divisions. The top four players (semifinalists) from each age division at each regional will advance to the "Little Mo" Nationals held at the Austin Tennis Academy in Austin, Texas from September 29 - October 2.

 

The "Little Mo" tournaments are sponsored by the Maureen Connolly Brinker Tennis Foundation in memory of its tennis champion namesake Maureen "Little Mo" Connolly. Known by her nickname "Little Mo", she was the first woman to win the Grand Slam of tennis at only 18 years of age in 1953. Maureen Connolly is still the youngest and the only American woman to have accomplished this magnificent feat. The foundation has promoted junior tennis development for the past 49 years and continues to benefit countless numbers of boys and girls throughout the country.

 

Please help us spread the word to all of your friends, coaches, and teaching pros! Thank you and Play "Mo" Tennis!
