Welcome to the TORO TOUR - Race to November!
The vision behind the TORO TOUR is to create a platform where our players can groom their skills through a series of tournaments where players accumulate points similar to that of the ATP Race, giving them a similar feel to that of a professional player where hard work and dedication is rewarded. To find out more about the TORO TOUR please read further below.
What is the TORO TOUR Race to November?
It is our academy's in-house tournament that is basically a platform for the Stellenbosch, Cape Town and Kuils River players who are on a similar level to play points/matches against one another. There are three categories and a player can choose in which category his/her level falls in the best and then join in the fun. The goal is to ultimately win your category in the FINALS which are held in November hence the slogan "Race to November". There are 5 TOUR rounds that leads up to the final in Nov. Only the top eight players on the rankings of each category after round 5 will go to the Finals. The format is 10-point tiebreakers and each point you win during a match during the ROUNDS counts toward your overall ranking. Here are the categories:
RED is for starting players who has never competed before and usually age 5-8.
ORANGE is for players who has played in the RED, who are more advanced, able to rally the ball and play points on the Orange Court. These players are usually between the ages 8 - 10
GREEN A and GREEN B are the more advanced juniors and intermediate juniors respectively who plays matches often.
The most important thing to know about the TORO TOUR is that anybody part of TORO can join in no matter what level you're currently at. Hope to see you there!!
