A unique opportunity to compete against peers

I remember how excited our youngest son was last year when he got to play as a six-year-old in the “Little Mo” after hearing about the tournament from a local pro the previous fall. For months, he asked me when the Little Mo tournament was, and he was thrilled to drive up with his big brother to play.

There just aren’t that many opportunities for kids his age through about 10 to compete with others on a more or less equal footing. He competes in the local USTA level 3 10-and-unders, but those are single-session round robins, and he’s often up against kids two or three years his senior.

So, I think the “Little Mo” is an important tournament for younger kids who have a passion for tennis because it gives them a unique opportunity to compete against peers.
