Tennis Europe flagship senior competition dates and venues confirmed

Tennis Europe has announced the dates and venues for two of the region’s flagship senior tennis competitions – the European Senior Championships and European Senior Club Championships. The announcement follows the completion of an open bidding process, which led to three-year agreements with the new hosts of each event.

The European Senior Championships will be moving to Pörtschach in Austria, during the week of 11-17 June. The Regional Closed (RC1) event is Europe’s most prestigious in terms of ranking points and will see all men’s and ladies’ age categories in action (35-85).

After a one-year break, the European Senior Club Championships are heading back to the award-winning La Manga Club resort in Spain, where the event was successfully held from 2012 to 2016.

The event will be staged over two weeks, with the ‘Super Senior’ 60-75 age groups in action first, from 9-14 September. They will be followed by the 35-55 age categories, from 17-22 September.

One of the biggest events in European tennis, last year’s competition attracted a total of 92 teams, comprised of 470 players. The tournament is open to national club champions and runners-up from each of Tennis Europe’s 50 member nations.

Further information including the tournament fact sheets will be released in due course. For further information, please contact Nadja Koran.
