Champions crowned at the British Masters Closed Grass Court Championships 2023


Last month we returned to the grass courts of Aorangi Park for The British Masters Closed Grass Court Championships, played from 13 - 20 August.

This year we had the welcome addition of a further eight match courts at the AELTC Community Tennis Centre, Raynes Park. This enabled us to increase draw sizes in some events and a total of 22 match courts.

A total of 484 matches were played throughout the week, involving 507 players, competing for 50 age group titles, with the addition this year of events in the Men's and Women's 30s categories.

Presentations were made throughout the week to the singles and doubles Finalists and there is an array of photographs from these presentations available from our social media channels. We were also joined for Presentations on the final day by Seniors Tennis GB President, Keith Bland and Seniors Tennis GB Chairman, Anne Clark. 

Full results are available on the ITF website and also on our Seniors’ Competitions page.

Huge congratulations to all our winners on what was a fantastic week of competition at Aorangi Park. Check out our full list of champions below.
