“MNTC Junior Champions Ladder”
What is it?
We believe competitive match play creates realistic situational play that prepares players to compete under pressure. MNTC’s Junior Champion Ladder will allow juniors to apply their skills learned in practice, independently identify their strengths and weaknesses, problem solve, and build character and integrity through the valuable experience of winning and losing.“In terms of playing ability there is nothing to choose between number one and 100. Instead, it’s a question of who believes and who wants it more? Which player is mentally stronger? Which player is going to fight the hardest in the big points? These are the things that determine who is the champion.” -Novak Djokovic
