Question about Iran tournament..

This week there is a junior tennis tournament in Iran (G5).But when I click to see the girls draw it is empty.. there is not girls junnior competition allowed or what it could be the reason?
If I rememeber correctly Iran has a Fed Cup Team and some pictures where posted in GM thread showing their outfit..

Thanks

Re: Question about Iran tournament..

If you look back on the ITF site calender, this is the 15th edition of the tournament, and its always been boys only...

Many other middle eastern countries do let girls play, so this is a shame

Re: Question about Iran tournament..

I was just looking at this, I think it is a disgrace! The ITF shouldn't allow this tournament to go ahead, as it is not giving all juniors in Middle East a fair chance to play.

Is there any other ITF Junior tournament, that only allows one sex to play?

Jelena Jankovic | Jelena Dokic | Conny Perrin | Kelly Liggan | Vita Diatchenko | Irini Georgatou
Domachowska | Bacsinszky | Cirstea | Halep | Chala | Baltacha | Antoniychuk | Naydenova

Beth Mattek-Sands Georgie Stoop

Come back soon Tati

Re: Question about Iran tournament..

It seems that girls play tennis in Iran if you have a look in this article where explains the return of Iran Fed Cup Team after 37 years.

@Tennis-Chick: I was thinking that probably Kuwait/Iraq/Afganistan could be some of them,I dont know really.
