The Monte-Carlo Country Club will be hosting the second Tennis Europe Junior Masters from 26 to 28 October 2022, on the club’s legendary clay courts.
This major end-of-season event will be attended by the best young European players, at the same venue that hosts the iconic ATP Masters 1000 and the Rolex Monte Carlo Masters. Held under the High Patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, eight of Europe’s most skilled boys and girls in the under-14 and under-16 categories will be participating for the championship title.

I am delighted to be able to receive these young champions, who will certainly constitute the future elite of world tennis, in the Principality,” said Melanie-Antoinette de Massy, President of the Monegasque Tennis Federation and the Monte-Carlo Country Club.
