Junior Tour returns to Iceland

Junior Tour returns to Iceland

The Tennis Europe Junior Tour returned to Iceland last week for the first time since 2019.

The Category 3 Kópavogur Open was played at Tennishöllin, Iceland’s only indoor club, with 3 carpet and 2 hard courts. A total of 63 players aged 14 & Under competed in 94 matches in singles, doubles and bonus draws. 

Bonus draws are a rarity in indoor events, but Tournament Director Jonas Pal Björnsson was keen to offer the extra match play for players flying to one of the Tour’s most remote destinations just for one or two matches.

The singles competitions resulted in debut Tour singles titles for unseeded French boy Louis Henriet and second seeded Austrian girl Valentina Hoschek.

In addition to the on-court action, most of the players and their families were also able to visit some of the local attractions like Geysirs, waterfalls, volcanos and the Blue Lagoon.

With the return to Iceland, the Tour is set to call in on at least 45 of Tennis Europe’s 48 active member nations this year. 2023 looks set to be another year of growth for the Tour, with the total number of events likely to exceed last year’s record of 460.
