GB Pro-Series 2022: International tennis returns to Foxhills this July



International tennis stars will once again swing into action at Foxhills Club & Resort as the GB Pro-Series returns for a 13th time this summer.

The tournament will take place from Sunday, July 31, until Saturday, August 6, 2022 and will provide a glimpse of some up-and-coming tennis stars in their quest to earn world ranking points.

The GB Pro-Series is a Women’s ITF World Tennis Tour event with a total prize pot of $25,000. Some of the world’s top players, including the likes of Emma Raducanu, will have played at this level of event to sharpen their game ahead of their breakthrough to the world’s top 20.

This event is a popular destination for players ahead of travelling out to North America to qualify for the US Open, and 2022 is likely to prove no different. There promises to be a mixture of established top-200 world ranked players, together with emerging young talent who are climbing the professional tennis pyramid.

Players who have since moved on to the higher echelons of the game have previously competed at Foxhills. 2011 saw former British number one, Johanna Konta, beat Laura Robson in the final. The last event in 2019 saw highly popular Dutch player, Lesley Kerkhove, return to Foxhills as top seed, winning the ladies' singles title without dropping a set, while 2019 Wimbledon mixed doubles quarter-finalist, Eden Silva, captured the ladies' doubles title with partner Beth Grey.

Richard Joyner, the LTA’s tournament director for the event, said: “It is always such a pleasure to return to Foxhills, especially in 2022 after the worldwide pandemic cancelled events in both 2020 and 2021. The club is always so proactive in its support of the tournament which, together with the fantastic facilities, makes it such a great week for the players and everyone involved.

“It’s certainly a very popular stop-off on the Tour for the players and this year’s event will again see a strong player line-up, with some excellent tennis promised throughout the week. I’m sure the players will love the new facilities at the club which have been completed since our last visit.”

Qualifying is scheduled for Sunday, July 31, and Monday, August 1, with the main draw starting on Tuesday, August 2. Both finals are scheduled for Saturday, August 6.

Entry to the event is free of charge for tennis fans throughout the week, ahead of the semi-finals on Friday, August 5, and final on Saturday, August 6. Fans wishing to attend on the Friday and Saturday have an opportunity to purchase seat-only tickets on the day on a first-come, first-served basis for just £10.

For finals day on Saturday, there is an opportunity to add an extra layer of luxury to the tournament experience with Foxhills’ hospitality package, showcasing its extensive range of culinary delights and outstanding facilities.

Costing £50 for adults and £25 for children, hospitality guests can enjoy tea, coffee and pastries on arrival before watching the final matches from reserved grandstand seating. This will be followed by a two-course lunch in The Fox dining rooms and a cream tea post-match.
