BOB O'CONNOR CLASSIC

Frick Park Red Clay Jr Open

Boys and girls (divisions 16, 14 and 12 & under) from City neighborhoods and as far away as Madrid, Spain, and Puerto Rico compete yearly in the only junior tournament held on red clay in all of western Pennsylvania. This USTA-sanctioned event is organized by the Frick Park Clay Court Tennis Club, a community tennis association (CTA).

This open junior tournament accepts both City and non-City residents and has no USTA or other ranking requirements. Entries are open and players of all levels – novice to experienced junior tournament players – are encouraged to enter.

Large draws for each event ensure local players are exposed to a great variety of other players. To make the most of their tournament experience, relative novices are encouraged to participate in the Mini-Camp at Frick Park the preceding week (see below).

Main Draw matches best 2 out of 3 tiebreak sets and are held Monday to Friday, all day, 8:00 a.m. to dusk, with Main Draw Singles Finals on Saturday at 12:00 p.m. to be followed by all Singles Consolation Draws. All doubles matches are held on Friday, 8:00 a.m. - dusk.
