The Junior Championship was a special tournament that took place during Series 47.
Three contestants from the Junior Championship would begin new runs on Countdown as adults. Amey Deshpande became an octochamp and quarter-finalist of Series 56, Andrew Hulme became an octochamp with a record 930 point total and runner-up in Series 61, and Bruce Lambert returned but lost his first game in Series 63.
These games were of the 9-round format, although broadcast during the 15-round era. They are (along with the Ladies' Championship in Series 49) the only 9-round games to feature Teatime Teasers or whatever they were called then.
