British Tour: Return to Elite Competition (July Swing)

The LTA is delighted to launch the LTA British Tour: Return to Elite Competition which will take place over consecutive weeks from 2-26 July. All four tournaments will be staged at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton, which has already been approved as an elite training venue and will continue as such during this time. 

The tournaments will generally be held over three or four days: Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with the four day events starting on the Thursday. Plus there will be a a one day doubles-only event on the Sunday for eight teams played under FAST4 format at each Premier stop.  

Additionally, the LTA has increased total prize money at each tournament by 50% and all players from the first round onwards will receive prize money to help support the incomes and expenses from a wider base of players during this challenging time.

Players are asked to note the following:

  • The entry criteria for these events are based on the government guidelines for ‘Stage 3 Return to Elite Competition’.
  • Please read the Tournament Regulations to ensure you meet the entry criteria for these events, and to see the order of acceptance.
  • Acceptance lists will be published within 48 hours of the entry deadline and will be published here.
  • There will be a medical process prior to arrival and clearance for these tournaments, related to COVID-19.
