History: Boys’ 12s Clay Court Championships in Winston-Salem

The Boys’ 12s Clay Court Championships was started in Winston-Salem in 1976. This prestigious event has brought 128 players from across the United States together to test their skills against the best players their age in the country. Players are selected by their regional sections to participate. 

The tournament was removed from the national junior tournament schedule in the late 1990s as less emphasis was placed on 12 and under competition by the United States Tennis Association. Once reinstated, the tournament has been in Greensboro, NC until its return to Winston-Salem in 2010. 

Many factors contributed to the return of the tournament to Winston-Salem, but the primary attractions were local community involvement, tournament history and superior facilities. 

We are proud to return the tournament to its original location and hope you will be a part of this great event!
