Last year’s events saw high quality tennis played throughout the summer and plenty to cheer for those supporting British players.
In Nottingham, Johanna Konta became the first homegrown champion at a domestic WTA tour event since Sue Barker in 1981 and Emma Raducanu made her main Tour debut courtesy of an LTA wildcard. The cinch Championships in London saw current British number one, Cameron Norrie, narrowly lose out in the final to eventual Wimbledon finalist Matteo Berrettini, whilst Gordon Reid took home the wheelchair singles title.
In Birmingham, Ons Jabeur beat Daria Kasatkina to become the first Arab woman ever to win a WTA Tour title. Both she and Berrettini would quickly establish themselves in the world top 10.
Finally on grass the WTA 500 women's singles event at Eastbourne was won by former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko and the ATP 250 men's singles event was claimed by Alex de Minaur.
The British Open in July saw more domestic success with Alfie Hewett winning the men’s singles title, Jordanne Whiley finishing runner up to Diede De Groot in the women’s singles, and Hewett and Reid combining to win the men’s doubles title.
Next year’s events once again will allow fans to see leading British and international players at close quarters, and there will be a focus on inspiring a new generation of players to pick up a racket. Final dates for the British Open in July will be confirmed as soon as possible.
Tickets for all events will go on sale in spring 2022, and ticket holders who chose to roll over their tickets from cancelled events in 2020 will be contacted by the end of this year.
Scott Lloyd, LTA Chief Executive said: “Last year presented significant operational challenges because of the pandemic, but we were proud that every event we hosted was open to spectators and delivered high quality competitive tennis. This year we are looking forward to our tour level events helping open up tennis to new audiences and provide excitement and enjoyment to those attending or watching at home.
Initial dates for the new adult and junior Performance Competitions Calendar, which will incorporate ITF World Tennis Tour events, domestic events, junior international and national events for 2022 will be released shortly. Details of the grass court Trophy Series will also be released soon.
