It is on the Champ de Mars, in the very heart of Paris, that 16 youngsters will compete again this year to determine who wins the final on Saturday 30th May and is thus awarded with a Longines watch, the tournament cup and an annual scholarship until his 16th birthday.

Each of the players come from a different country (Australia, China, Denmark, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Poland, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, the U.K. and the U.S.A.) and has been selected by their respective national tennis federations.

The visit to Paris for these future champions will start on May 26th and 27th, with the Longines Academy, a training camp that will give them the opportunity to familiarize themselves with playing on clay and to receive technical tips from two specialists in the sport.

The youngsters will then take part in the competition lucky draw on the evening of May 27. Throughout the week, the players will receive encouragement from the tournament’s patron, former French tennis player Arnaud Clément.
