Bayside’s junior representative teams participate in several regional and state-wide competitions. Associations Junior League (AJL) is run by Tennis Victoria. In conjunction with Moorabbin Districts, we offer our players a chance to represent the region in various teams. For other tournaments like the Wayne Arthur Cup, Frank Sedgman Cup and the Alicia Molik Cup, Bayside fields one 4-member team. 

 

THE AJL

This competition is run by Tennis Victoria and is ideal for juniors who have performed well at the club level and are looking for more challenge. While it is more competitive, it is played in a team format and is great preparation for Australian ranking tournaments. The 10/U is a mixed team while 12/U, 14/U and 16/U have girls and boys teams. Bayside-Moorabbin fields a number of graded teams in each section.
