From 23rd to 28th July, Nottingham Tennis Centre will once again host the British Open Wheelchair Tennis Championships. Now in its 30th year, this tournament is one of the most important in the world besides the Grand Slams: come and see Great Britain’s astonishing Paralympic medalists and other top players from across the globe in action!
There are three tournaments at the British Open: the Super Series, the Futures and the Junior tournament. The Super Series draws the world’s top players – several Paralympic Wheelchair Tennis medalists and Grand Slam champions – most of whom come straight from Wimbledon to compete. Be sure to catch the exciting emerging talent, too, in the Junior tournament.
If the tournaments aren’t enough, there’s plenty of other activities to keep you busy. Bring the family for ‘Come and Try Tennis’ on Saturday 27th July, where you can try your hand at tennis, and wheelchair tennis and other forms of disability tennis. The Nottingham Tennis Centre is the largest public tennis court in Britain, so make sure to explore the rest of this beautiful complex; and, of course, tempt your taste buds with some delectable goodies in the café – or, even better, bring your own picnic of strawberries and bubbles!
Events run daily from 9:30 am to 6 pm and are completely free – although booking is strongly encouraged. The Mercure Nottingham is located just 3 miles from the Nottingham Tennis Centre, so provides the perfect base to ensure you arrive right on time. Book now and get ready for the fun to begin!
