Easter Bowl Returns to Indian Wells for 54th Edition

The Easter Bowl is making a return to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden March 26-April 3 for the 54th edition of one of the nation’s largest and most prestigious junior tournaments.

The 18s division is an ITF Level JB1. Gold, silver and bronze balls will be handed out for top finishers in the 18s, 16s, 14s and 12s for both boys and girls. The winner of the Boys and Girls 14s singles titles this year will be awarded spots in Wimbledon’s inaugural 14&U Championships.

The event has a new title sponsor in FILA and will be live streamed at www.easterbowl.com.
