Professional Tennis returns to USN Bolton Arena

As part of the ITF World Tennis Tour some players with a world ranking inside the top 200 will be converging on the Arena for this men’s & women’s $25,000 event. The ITF World Tennis Tour is the first stage of the professional tennis ladder, with the all of the current world’s top 10 having sharpened their skills at this level.

Bolton last staged an event at this level in 2004, a men’s event which saw a 17 year old Andy Murray in action. Marcos Bagdhatis won the title, an was then ranked 8 in the world just 2 years later, having reached the final of the Australian Open and semi-final of Wimbledon in 2016.

Tournament Director, Richard Joyner, commented ‘This really is a great opportunity to come to watch some professional tennis free of charge. A number of players competing at this level progress to the higher echelons of the game, as reflected by Marcos Baghdatis reaching a grand slam final, and the world’s top 10 within 2 years of capturing the 2004 Bolton title. The women’s event could attract some players already inside the world’s top 200, and the event promises to produce a great spectacle of men’s and women’s tennis’.

The qualifying event is scheduled for Monday 1 April, with main draw starting Tuesday 2 April playing through to the doubles final’s on Saturday 6 April, and singles finals on Sunday 7 April. Play is scheduled to start from 10.00am each day with the order of play confirmed on a daily basis.
