We look forward to seeing you this year on the 20th "Road to the Little Mo Nationals".  The "Little Mo" Sectionals/Regionals/Nationals sites and dates are listed below. The "Little Mo" tennis tournaments are the premier challenge for youngsters 
across the nation to compete against others who are the same age at the sectional, regional, and national level.  


All “Little Mo” tournaments are played with the yellow ball on a full 78’ tennis court, but there will also be a green dot option on full court for the 8's, 9’s, and 10’s divisions at the sectional level. Please note: The top 8 players from the yellow ball and green dot divisions will advance to the “Little Mo” Regionals, but all green dot players will need to play with the yellow ball at the Regionals as there will be no green dot divisions.


Players can play in any "Little Mo" Sectionals and more than one if they wish, but must follow the path to the appropriate "Little Mo" Regional (see list below). For example, a player who lives in Georgia may play in the "Little Mo" Texas but will need tfollow the path of the Texas sectional and play in the South Regionals. 

·       Midwest, Middle States, New England, Northern, and Eastern -------> North Regionals

·       Texas and Missouri Valley Sectionals -------> South Regionals

·       Mid-Atlantic, Southern, and Florida Sectionals -------> East Regionals

·       Northern California, Southern California, and Pacific Northwest Sectionals -------> West Regionals


Anyone who lives in the United States can play "Little Mo"  as well as U.S. Territories (i.e. Puerto Rico) can play "Little Mo".  


Players from British Columbia, Canada are able to play in the Pacific Northwest Sectionals but are unable to advance to the Regional level.  


Players must play their own age: 8's play 8's, 9's play 9's, 10's play 10's, 11's play 11's, and 12’s play 12’s. Eligibility is as follows:

·       12's - born in 2005

·       11's - born in 2006

·       10's - born in 2007

·       9's - born in 2008

·       8's - born in 2009 or 2010
