• 3 MINUTE READ
Tuesday 15 January will see Scotstoun Tennis Centre host the ITF World Tennis Tour W25 and M25 GB Pro Series tournaments.
Glasgow will be the seventh and eighth ITF tournaments on British soil this year. 16 ITF events have been scheduled for this year, double the number of competitions staged compared to 2019, providing British players with international ranking points or prize money earning opportunities.
The primary aim of the 2022 calendar is to provide significantly enhanced playing opportunities for British players at each age and stage of the performance player pathway in Britain.
Glasgow will see 19 British men competing in the main draw of the singles tournament, including the top seeded Glaswegian, Aidan McHugh, who is on the LTA’s Pro Scholarship Programme – the highest level of support for players aged 16-24. Alongside McHugh, M25 Bath Champion Daniel Cox (Lincolnshire) and last week’s M25 Shrewsbury winner Alastair Gray (Surrey) will also be in action. Nine women, including the recent W25 Edgbaston Champion, Sonay Kartal (Sussex), Jodie Burrage (Surrey), the W25 Edgbaston quarterfinalist, and Tara Moore (Yorkshire) are included in the women’s singles draw.

16 British males competed in the qualifying rounds of the tournament, with six players including Alexis Canter (Oxfordshire) Scott Duncan (Scotland East) and Oscar Weightman (Middlesex) successfully gaining a spot in the main draw. Canter will face the number 1 British seed McHugh in the opening round. In the women’s qualifying, Nadia Rawson (Cornwall), Jasmine Conway (Oxfordshire) and Anna Brogan (Scotland West) have all succeeded to the main draw. Conway had a difficult second round qualifying match against fellow Brit and wildcard, Isabelle Lacy, who pushed her to a third set tie break, but came out victorious 67(6) 61 10-8.
