British stars head to Nottingham and Foxhill for latest ITF Tour events
• 2 MINUTE READ
British players will be looking for more success as two more tournaments on the ITF’s World Tennis Tour are staged at Foxhills and in Nottingham.
Former two-time Wimbledon quarter-finalist Tamira Paszek from Austria, who is also a former champion at the Eastbourne International, is one of the big names appearing at the ITF World Tennis Tour W25 hard court event at the Foxhills Country Club in Surrey, where Italy’s Lucrezia Stefanini will be top seed.
British teenager Jasmine Conway will also be in action at Foxhills after her run to the quarter-finals of Junior Wimbledon last month, while Scotland’s Maia Lumsden returns to the court after she came through qualifying to make it into the final of last week’s ITF’s World Tennis Tour tournament in Nottingham.
Meanwhile on the grass courts in Nottingham, Arthur Fery will be aiming to build on his success from last week as he collected the biggest title of his career in the ITF World Tour event at the Nottingham Tennis Centre last week.
Britain’s Alastair Gray will be the top seed for a second successive week in Nottingham, as the 24-year-old who is supported by our Men’s and Women’s Programme (MWP) that is focused on providing exceptional training, won the doubles event at the ITF event in Nottingham last week. A host of British players including Charles Broom, Daniel Cox and Stuart Parker are also in action in Nottingham.
These tournaments are the latest in an expanded calendar of pro level International ITF World Tennis Tour events being staged by the LTA in Great Britain this year, with the number of events more than doubling from seven men’s events and eight women’s events in 2019 to 16 for men and 16 for women in 2022. This is in addition to the grass court season playing opportunities already in place.
Across these events, we have introduced progression through wild card feed-ups into higher-level competitions and retained the LTA Tournament Bonus Scheme in addition to prize money earned.
