THE local junior players will be out to stamp their mark at the week-long West Pacific qualifying tournament which started at the Regional Tennis Centre in Lautoka yesterday.

The competition has attracted players from Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Kiribati.

Matches are being played in three grades in the boy's and girl's sections.

The grades are under-12, U14 and U16.

Krishan Raju, Mulan Kamoe and Ruby Coffin are leading Fiji's charge.

Fiji Tennis Association vice president Naga Reddy said the top players from the tournament would be selected to represent the West Pacific team at the Pacific Oceania Junior Championship.

"The East Pacific and North Pacific qualifiers will be held after this tournament," he said.

"We expect to witness high level of tennis in the next couple of days. The finals will be held on Saturday. Playoffs will be held to determine the ranking of all the players."

The Pacific Oceania Junior Championship will be held in Lautoka in August.
