Throughout the indoor season, Lakewood Indoor Tennis Centre hosted monthly Rogers Rookie Tour events, as well as U14 and U18 Challenger Tour events. The Rogers Rookie Tour events catered to recreational to semi-competitive junior players in a variety of age divisions. The Challenger Tour events catered to competitive junior players who already play in provincial tournaments. Both tours did a great job of increasing the competitive opportunities for junior players in Saskatoon (and those willing to travel into the city). Each division kept an internal ranking system based on points earned at each event. Here are the top three finishers in each division:

Rogers Rookie Tour:

Red Division (8 & Under):

  1. Jace Ryder
  2. Nicolas Gravel
  3. Grace Yang

Orange Division (10 & Under):

  1. Brennan Rice
  2. Arya Guha
  3. Andrew Knihnitski

Green Division (12 & Under):

  1. Arya Guha
  2. Mykhaylo Kortunov
  3. Burke Babyak

Challenger Tour:

U14 Division:

  1. David Preciado
  2. Nicholas Pesenti
  3. Kayaan Tharani
