Nottingham Tennis Centre plays host to many varied tournaments throughout the year, including the LTA GB Pro Series events, British Tour events, the British Deaf Championships and the British Wheelchair Championships. In the past, the centre has hosted Davis Cup and Fed Cup ties.

In 2015, former Wimbledon semi-finalist Daniela Hantuchova said of the wonderful grass courts in Nottingham “Apart from Wimbledon, I don’t think I’ve ever played on such a good court” and these brilliant facilities at the tennis centre as well as the city itself are just two reasons why the events attract the highest ranked players in the world.

The trophy awarded to the singles champion of the WTA International is named after Elena Baltacha, the ex-British No.1 player who tragically lost her battle with cancer in May 2014. The trophy awarded to the ATP Challenger singles champion is named after Paul Hutchins, who passed away in March 2019 following his battle with Motor Neurone Disease. Paul was a past Tournament Director in Nottingham but also a player, coach, captain, commentator and, administrator who dedicated over 50 years of loyal service to tennis in Britain and whose impact and influence on tennis was immeasurable.
