2020 “LITTLE MO” SLAM - WIN THE 6 FOOT TROPHY!
In honor of Maureen’s Grand Slam win, MCB created the ultimate challenge in 2013 for any player to win the “Little Mo” Slam. If a “Little Mo” player can win their yellow ball division at all three “Little Mo” Internationals in the same year, they will receive the tallest trophy ever given in junior tennis (6’ tall) and the title of Slam Champion! The “Little Mo” Slam continues this year with the 1st leg at the Balboa Tennis Club in San Diego, California (June 19-24, 2020). The second leg will be held at the historic West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, New York (August 24-29, 2020). The 3rd and final leg will be featured at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida (December 4-9, 2020). There have been eight players who have accomplished this great achievement in the past seven years. Who will it be this year?

The “Little Mo” Internationals is one of the premier junior tournaments for talented, high performance boys and girls (ages 8-12) in addition to the “Big Mo” division for ages 13-16. These events are designed to provide outstanding competition at the international level while also encouraging players to develop new friendships, learn good sportsmanship, and most of all, have fun. The "Little Mo" is also unique in that it gives youngsters the opportunity to gauge their ability against other players born in the same year from around the world (i.e., 8's play 8's, 9's play 9's). All singles and doubles yellow ball results from the three "Little Mo" Internationals (California, New York, and Florida) will count towards Universal Tennis Ratings (UTR only accepts yellow ball results).

The “Little Mo” Internationals is our flagship event for international players, which brings together the youngest and brightest stars in tennis from across the United States and worldwide. It is a great opportunity to play against others from different countries and see various styles of play from around the world. Many well-known collegiate players and famous tennis professionals have participated in the “Little Mo” program over the years including Andy Roddick, Dominic Thiem, Ryan Harrison, Coco Gauff, Taylor Townsend, Vasek Pospisil, Borna Coric, Madison Keys, Donald Young, Steve Johnson, Sonya Kenin, Denis Kudla, CiCi Bellis, Ana Konjuh, and Belinda Bencic. Roddick won the “Little Mo” in 1992 at 10 years of age and said, “the ‘Little Mo’ was my first big win!” Gauff won the “Little Mo” in 2012 (age 8) and said, “the ‘Little Mo’ was where the belief began.”

2020 “ROAD TO THE LITTLE MO NATIONALS”
In addition to the Internationals, MCB hosts the “Road to the Little Mo Nationals” circuit of sectional, regional, and national tournaments across the United States. It is the only yearlong circuit of its kind for talented, high performance boys and girls (ages 8-12) who reside in the USA and its territories. All yellow ball results from the Road will count towards Universal Tennis Ratings (UTR only accepts yellow ball results). We hope you will join us this year for the 23rd Annual “Road to the Little Mo Nationals”! Please visit our website at www.mcbtennis.org for more information on our 2020 calendar.

The "Little Mo" tournaments are hosted by MCB in memory of its tennis champion namesake Maureen Connolly. Known by her nickname “Little Mo”, she was the first woman to win the Grand Slam in 1953 - winning all four major tournaments (Australian, French, Wimbledon, and U.S. Open) in the same year. She is still the only American woman and the youngest at age 18 to have accomplished this magnificent feat. Only five players in the history of tennis have won the calendar Grand Slam.

Thank you for your support of the “Little Mo” as it is truly a "one of a kind" tournament for young tennis players. Last year, approximately 3,000 youngsters worldwide competed in the “Little Mo” and we hope to see even more youngsters play this wonderful “sport of a lifetime” next year. We wish you all good luck in your matches, but most of all, we hope you enjoy the tournament, have fun, and meet some new friends. Play “Mo” Tennis!
