For tennis enthusiasts 2018 promises exhilaration, tension, highs, lows, drama, a few unlikely misses and surprises aplenty. Planning the year ahead in terms of tennis often means avid TV watching for the Australian Open, the first grand slam of the year played on a hard court, and a multitude of ATP and WTA tournaments as the tennis elite make their way towards the clay courts at Roland Garros from 21st May to the 10th June 2018.
The pinnacle of the tennis year for British fans must be the arrival of the grass court season in the UK.
- Queen’s Club Championships, Kensington, London: 18th June – 24th June 2018.
(Formerly the Aegon Championships.)
- The Boodles Challenge at Stoke Park Country Club & Resort: 26th June – 30th June 2018.
- Wimbledon, The All England Club, London: 2nd July – 15th July 2018.
The grass court season over, the tour moves on towards the USA. The US Open at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York is between 27th August – 9th September 2018 and is another hard court grand slam.
The Nitto ATP tour finals are held at the O2 Arena, London in November each year and here, only the best compete.
There is so much to look forward to, as ever, and we can only hope that the slew of players who took time off for injury in the second half of 2017 are fit to play, eager to compete and ready to dominate their rivals.
At these events corporate hospitality and private hospitality experiences can take a magnificent day in to the realms of unbelievable and yet real. From exclusive access areas to the best seats courtside, from fine dining to meet and greets and talks with legends of tennis, the standard tickets pale when compared with pre-tailored competitively priced hospitality packages from companies including the renowned DTB Sports and Events.
Queen’s Club excellence, on and off court
Don’t be fooled, Queen’s Club tennis is not a poor relation to Wimbledon. It’s a vital component of the tennis tour, a player and fan favourite. Capacity was increased after 2016’s event to accommodate the demand which this ATP 500 event attracts. Andy Murray has now won here a record breaking five times, can he make that six in 2018? Can Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares take the doubles again?
Any guest who has already received Aegon hospitality will know that the big names, sporting prowess, excellent facilities and seating, historic setting, exquisite dining and entertaining opportunities offered within the tennis hospitality areas deliver perfection.
