The Tennis Event at the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) is an ITF Grade A competition that brings together the world's best players in the 18 & Under age category.
Singapore 2010 was the inaugural Youth Olympic Games, and now China will host the second ever YOG at Nanjing 2014 on 16-28 August.
Nanjing, located in East Central China on the Yangtze River, was selected as the host city at the IOC session in Vancouver, which took place prior to the 2010 Winter Games, with Poznan in Poland just missing out (47 votes to 42 votes).
The Nanjing Olympic Sports Center, which opened in 2005, includes stadiums for many of the YOG sports, such as athletics, swimming and tennis. The Tennis Center's main court has a capacity of 7,800 seats, then there are two further show courts, 14 outdoor courts and four indoor courts.
Tennis is one of 26 sports contested at the Youth Olympic Games with singles and doubles events for boys and girls. Like other sports, the players compete for gold, silver and bronze medals. There is also a consolation singles event for first round losers.
