Kimberly Hampton Most Improved Junior Girl Award

Junior players who make the most improvement in their game with consideration given to their improvement in state, section, and national (if applicable) rankings

Alice Otis

One of Alice Otis’ favorite tennis memories is playing her first tournament at age 11 after starting a full-time tennis program. The tournament was a Level 3 on Pawley’s Island where all of her family lives so both sets of her grandparents were there to see her win. 

In the past year, Alice Otis has improved her South Carolina ranking in girls 14s from number 13 to number 3. Her Southern ranking went from number 52 last year to as high as number 3, and she is currently holding at number 4. 

After winning an Icy Hot Southern Level 2 singles title at the end of 2017, Alice started in 2018 by making it to the semifinals of Winter Southerns and then won a Southern Level 1A in both singles and doubles.

This year she was part of the South Carolina team, contributing 5 wins that won the 26th Annual Southern Junior Cup, ending Georgia’s 24-year winning streak.

Alice is currently working on improving her National ranking which has risen from 399 to 154. She recently came in 5th in the National Doubles Championships and then won two doubles in a National Level 2 in Delray Beach, Florida.
