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" matches will be played with 
yellow ball for ages 8, 9, 10, and 11. (Green dot divisions will be offered in addition to the yellow ball as a choice for 8's, 9's, 10's depending on the sectional.) Please note: Only yellow ball divisions will advance to the  "Little Mo" Regional level. 

Players  can play in any "Little Mo" Sectional 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 to follow the path of the Texas sectional and play in the South Regionals.  
Players can play in more than one "Little Mo" Sectionals.  

Attention all California Players:  You can register to play in either the Northern Cal  and/or Southern Cal sectionals. (California players must play only in California if  playing with the yellow ball).  Players who don't live in California are able to play in either Southern Cal  and/or Northern Cal sectionals. 

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

Eligibility:   11's - born in 2003
                  10's - born in 2004
                    9's - born in 2005
