The Fundación Jesús Serra has launched the 5th edition of the Xpress Tennis Cup, our sports championship which has become consolidated as one of the most important tournaments on the national tennis circuit. With this event, we want to promote new sporting talent, as well as bringing tennis closer to children.
The Xpress Tennis Cup tournament has a total of three different circuits between the autonomous communities of Catalonia, the Community of Madrid and the Valencian Community in which children's teams represent their respective participating clubs.
The winning teams of each stage at the provincial level of the different categories (Sub-10 and Sub-12, both female and male), will participate in the grand final of the tournament, which will take place in the capital of each Autonomous Community. More than 2,000 players and 250 tennis club teams from the three Autonomous Communities are expected to compete in this year's edition.
We also have three tennis players as ambassadors of the Xpress Tennis Cup: Pablo Carreño, number 18 in the ATP ranking, Paula Badosa number 87 in the WTA ranking and Lola Ochoa number one in the wheelchair tennis ranking and ambassador for Fundación Jesús Serra.
How does the Xpress Tennis Cup work?
With an innovative 20-minute match format, with constant player changes (every two points won, there is a change) and with the coaches on court refereeing the opposing team, the participants will compete for victory in the tournament. Thanks to this new method, we want to foster teamwork in a sport that was originally individual.
