Utrecht, Holland: July 11th (Evening) – July 20th
This tournament is in a small picturesque town near Utrecht and has been voted best stop on our trip for many years now.
- We are warmly welcomed by the friendly Dutch in a small town atmosphere.
- We get plenty of match play and have time to spend socializing with the Dutch juniors.
The tournament has under 17 singles and doubles or mixed doubles, which in past summers has been a round robin format, assuring lots of matches for our players, win or lose.
- Besides all the tennis, the tournament offers a number of social activities throughout the week.
- Players have the opportunity to visit Amsterdam during our time in Holland to see the Anne Frank House, either the Van Gogh or Riksmuseum, the walking street, City Hall and take a canal boat ride in the “Venice of the North.”
- Always one of our favorite countries, Holland is a great way to finish our tennis trip.
