Welcome to Oberentfelden
Foreword FROMM SJT Oberentfelden Summer 2019
Dear tennis fans:
More than anything, Swiss Tennis is dedicated to the development of junior players. In order to fulfill this task, we have to introduce as many children as possible to the sport and get them excited about tennis. We are operating a comprehensive system of discovering and selecting junior talent, so that we can support them early on with targeted measures. However, not all of them want to or are able to become tennis pros – that’s why we also provide a vast offer of competitions and games for amateur athletes to ensure the broad basis necessary for any type of sport.
At the top, almost a dozen international junior tournaments are organized in Switzerland every year by Tennis Europe or the International Tennis Federation ITF. It is not least the success of the participating Swiss players which justifies the allocation of financial and staff resources of Swiss Tennis and the organizers of the tournaments. To give an example, in 2018, seven out of ten possible single titles at international junior tournaments in Switzerland were won by talented national junior players. They are thus able to take a further step ahead in their individual careers thanks to these experiences and points scored. We hope, of course, that last year’s successes will be repeated this year as well – and maybe even surpassed.
We would like to thank tournament director Freddy Blatter and his team for offering these chances to our juniors by staging the FROMM Swiss Junior Trophy time and again. Our thanks also go to our partners and sponsors who make an important contribution to the development of Swiss Tennis´ junior players.
I wish all the players a successful tournament week and take this opportunity to thank all the sponsors, partners, and benefactors.
President Swiss Tennis
