UTA Competition 2022 Little Dragons
June 18, 2022
The Highfield School
For the first time in over two years, we are having a UTA competition. This competition is for all UTA students from Little Dragons to seniors. This is to be held at Highfield School, Highfield, Letchworth. We will explain and practice what’s expected of the Little dragons in their lessons.
This is a great opportunity to test your skills in a friendly competition with fellow UTA members helping to raise much-needed funds to enable the delegates who have been successful in being selected to represent the UK at the ITF World Championships this summer. Some of whom started as a Little Dragon and some are already national and international champions. One day you/your child might be in the same position.
The UTA take pride in funding its competitors through a selection process and events like these help that funding and enable us to offer this great gift.
All Spectators are free for this event.
