As part of our goal of Tennis Opened Up and to make tennis as inclusive a sport as possible, we want to reiterate our ongoing support during Pride Month for LGBTQ+ communities across the country, and highlight that our events, along with the sport as a whole, are safe, inclusive and open spaces where people can be their authentic selves.
That’s why every friday of our major events in 2023 will once again host ‘Friday Pride Days’. These events place a special focus on Pride and act as a platform to raise visibility and awareness of LGBTQ+ inclusion in tennis.
We’d love it if as many people as possible attending the Rothesay Open brought as much colour as they can to the Nottingham Tennis Centre. Whether it’s simply wearing rainbow laces or a wristband, or wearing your brightest, most colourful t-shirt or pair of trousers, it would be fantastic if you could show your colours in support of Pride.
Volunteers from the Pride in Tennis network will be on-site throughout the day, to answer any questions fans have about Pride celebrations or what you can do to show support as allies of LGBTQ+ communities.
Unfortunately there is no left luggage facility on site. Spectators may not bring a bag larger than 16” x 12” x 12” (40cm x 30cm x 30cm) into the grounds. For your safety, all bags are subject to inspection by our security team and are brought to the tournament at the owner’s risk.

Your safety and security are very important to us and our security plans are regularly reviewed to ensure they remain in line with the latest threat level and recommendations from Nottinghamshire Police and our security advisors.
