Fast4: British Tour Circuit set to kickstart in March
• 2 MINUTE READ
The calendar for the British Tour FAST4 Circuit has now been confirmed for 2018, with the season kickstarting at London's National Tennis Centre on Saturday 24 March (men) and Sunday 25 March (women), ahead of the first rotation on the weekend of 28/29 April.
British Tour FAST4 events were introduced in 2016 to allow adult players, who may have previously played at a high standard (university, club, county, national or international level), the opportunity to compete in one-day competitions that fit around their busy lifestyles.
Many adult players are not able to compete in current week-long Tier 1 and Tier 2 British Tour events due to work commitments. FAST4 as a Tier 3 competition, allows players to play more matches in a short period of time, and have a 19+ age priority of acceptance.
The 2018 circuit has expanded to 50 events, with events in each rotation geographically spread across Great Britain, including an increase in the number of events in Scotland from four to seven during 2018.
2018 also sees the introduction of four British Tour FAST4 one-day doubles events, being strategically positioned on the weekend of 7/8 July, ahead of Summer County Cup.
