Players from five nationalities including Oman's top prospects have entered the tournament which got underway last evening with qualifying rounds in the boys' under-14 singles which has attracted 38 entries. We have received more than 130 entries, said a spokesman for the organisers.

In the under-14 category, Amaan Kazi is the No. 1 seed with Abdullah Al Barwani as the second seed. Ayaan Malhotra is the No. 1 seed in the boys' under-12 section with Hassan Haider the No. 2 seed.
