Ticket information announced for Loughborough’s ATP Challenger Tour event

Limited tickets for Loughborough University’s new ATP Challenger Tour event are available to purchase this week, with a 48-hour priority window for British Tennis Team Members starting Wednesday 11 April at 11am, followed by general sale release on 13 April from 11am.

The Loughborough Trophy will be staged at the Loughborough Sport Tennis Centre from 19 – 27 May. It is the second of two new $100,000 ATP Challenger Tour events to be staged by the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), with the first to be hosted at the Scotstoun Tennis Centre in Glasgow from 28 April – 6 May.

Both tournaments are set to provide quality competition on British soil ahead of the highly anticipated grass court season. The events will be played on indoor hard court, featuring a 32 singles qualifying draw followed by a 32 singles main draw, as well as a 16 pair doubles draw. 

The LTA will be announcing the entry list for the Loughborough Trophy on Tuesday 1 May, and qualifying and main draw wild cards will be announced closer to the start of the tournament.

Oliver Scadgell, LTA Director of Major Events and Competitions said: “We are delighted to host one of the LTA’s new ATP Challenger events in Loughborough this year.

“It will provide more match experience for both British and international players ahead of the grass court season, whilst also creating more opportunities for spectators across the country to watch world-class tennis. We hope fans secure their seats now to enjoy the action at this exciting new event.”

Tickets for the qualifying weekend will be free and main draw action will be available from £10 per ticket.*  

Fans will have the opportunity to sign up for British Tennis Team Membership by 11:59pm on Tuesday 10 April, to have the best chance to guarantee courtside action. Annual subscription to Team Membership is £30 for adults (18+) and Lite Members can upgrade for £20 by logging into their Members' Area.
