Both men’s and women’s singles events are run at each tournament. Most tournaments start on a Monday. Pre-qualifying and qualifying draws feed through to the main draw which usually commence on the Wednesday with the finals normally scheduled on the Saturday. Matches are scheduled during the daytime. Please check tournament schedule, tournament fact sheet, or with the event referee for exact days and dates, as these may vary.
Order of acceptances is based on ATP/WTA singles ranking, followed by LTA rating and open ranking at the entry deadline. Seeding in all draws is based on ATP/WTA singles ranking, followed by LTA rating and open ranking at the time of making the qualifying draw (7 day rank). Wherever feasible (after ATP/WTA singles ranking), each draw is composed of players in ratings groups.
Once qualifying draws have been published, only in exceptional circumstances, will any players be moved from a pre-qualifying draw to qualifying draw, or qualifying draw to main draw
All draw sizes will vary according to the number of entries, rating of entries, and number of courts available.
