Held since 1974, Rothesay International Eastbourne is classified as a WTA 500 series and an ATP 250 series. The tournament is played on outdoor grass courts, and takes place the week before Wimbledon Championships.

Played at Devonshire Park, Eastbourne is an event steeped in history and has welcomed some of the world’s greatest tennis talent onto its courts, watched on by thousands of tennis fans and spectators every year. Devonshire Park first opened its doors to the public as early as 1874, when it was intended as a cricket ground but tennis was gaining in popularity and won the rights to be claimed as a tennis ground. The first courts were laid in 1879 while the first stands were built in 1921 and the tennis centre as a whole was completed in 1998.

The first professional Lawn Tennis Championships of Great Britain commenced in 1919 and the first Women’s International Tennis Tournament was hosted here in 1974, sponsored by the LTA. The event was originally just part of the WTA tour, but became a combined event with the ATP Tour in 2009. Eastbourne replaced the Nottingham Open grass court tournament from 2009–2014 before Nottingham returned between 2015–2016 with no ATP Tour event in Eastbourne. However,  Eastbourne replaced the Nottingham event once again from 2017 onwards.

The venue and the event is rich in history and is an important draw to Eastbourne. The tournament also holds important historical significance to Lawn Tennis and continues to grow and develop each year, showcasing some of the best global tennis talent on its courts.

2024 marks the 50th anniversary of the tournament and the 150th anniversary of Devonshire Park itself.
