Grass courts, tennis whites and the fiercest competition in the world. Wimbledon. After two crazy weeks in Paris, the girls of the Outer Banks Tennis Academy are headed to London with just one thing on their minds: winning.

Indiana Gaffney is fresh off a surprise win at the French Open junior tournament. Sponsors are clamoring for her attention, but what she wants more than anything—aside from a wild card to Wimbledon—is to be with Jack Harrison, but international fame and a secret relationship rarely mix well.

When Penny Harrison dreamed of playing at Wimbledon she never imagined agonizing pain shooting through her ankle with every step. With just a month until the tournament and the whole world expecting her to win, she’s determined to play, with or without the support of her coach or the love of her life, Alex Russell.

For the first time ever, no one expects anything from Jasmine Randazzo. After a crushing first-round defeat in the French Open juniors, the tennis world has given up on her, but worse than that, so have her parents, her best friend Teddy and maybe even her coach. With everyone writing her off, can she find it within herself to go after her dreams?

Jana Kramer as Penny Harrison, the fastest rising star in the tennis world. She's nursing a tiny tear in her Achilles tendon, but isn't going to let that stop her from winning Wimbledon.

Jesse Williams as Jack Harrison. Penny's older brother and agent, Jack's young, brilliant and knows it, but will giving in to his attraction to the still under-age Indiana Gaffney derail everything he's worked for?

Amber Heard as Indiana Gaffney, with her athleticism and powerful serve, everyone is talking about her, but as the spotlight heats up, decisions on the court and off it could send this raw talent spiraling.

Victoria Justice as Jasmine Randazzo. Expected to live up to her parents tennis legacy her whole life, recent set-backs on the court, namely losing to Indy at the OBX Junior Classic has lifted that pressure, but with everyone's faith in her gone, can she have enough faith in herself to keep fighting for her dreams.

Chris Hemsworth as Alex Russell. The biggest star in tennis is back after an amazing win at the French Open, but he's still trying to prove to Penny that his love his real and that she doesn't have to choose between him and her career.

Jacob Artist as Teddy Harrison. Teddy's world is tilted on its head when an old flame shows up at OBX, bringing back every ounce of pain that made him swear off relationships for good and one stupid decision may cost him his best friend, Jasmine, this time for good.

Eduardo Verastegui as Paolo Macchia. Alex Russell's best friend and training partner hadn't been able to get Jasmine Randazzo out of his head since he ran into her at the French Open, but is he willing to put those feelings aside to help her live out her dream?

Jennifer Iacopelli was born in New York and has no plans to leave...ever. Growing up, she read everything she could get her hands on, but her favorite authors were Laura Ingalls Wilder, L.M. Montgomery and Frances Hodgson Burnett all of whom wrote about kick-ass girls before it was cool for girls to be kick-ass. She got a Bachelor's degree in Adolescence Education and English Literature quickly followed up by a Master's in Library Science, which lets her frolic all day with her books and computers, leaving plenty of time in the evenings to write and yell at the Yankees, Giants and her favorite tennis players through the TV.
