The IC Junior Challenge

The IC 16-and-under Junior Challenge began in 2005 and was made possible by generous donations from The Compass Group from its inception until 2018. During that time it was named for Compass but since then it now has the name of tennis great Rod Laver in its title. Rod Laver does this voluntarily as an IC Member. It is an IC competition, open to all 40+ ICs, for two girls and two boys with an adult captain. All juniors play both a singles and doubles match against other country teams with all matches counting towards one overall team result.  

A regional event is played on each of the five continents and the winners of the regional events go through to play the Worldwide Finals the following year together with the host country.

We are very grateful to The Compass Group for their commitment over the years, which has finally come to an end.  However, we are fortunate to have replaced the Compass Group funding with three other sources, so that the event will continue.   We are also delighted that tennis great Rod Laver has added his name to the event, which is known as “ The IC Rod Laver Junior Challenge”
