Eastbourne to Remain Key Venue for World Class Tennis

Eastbourne Borough Council has welcomed the news that the town will remain a key tennis venue for international tennis, following a review by the Lawn Tennis Association into the British grass court tennis season.

The new calendar begins in 2025 and will see men’s and ladies’ tennis securely established for future years at the Devonshire Park venue – renowned for its world-class grass courts.

The plans revealed by the LTA, see a new four-week calendar of British grass court events held in the lead-up to Wimbledon, designed to raise the profile and visibility of tennis. Eastbourne will host the final week in its usual calendar slot, changing the current WTA format with a combined WTA 250 and ATP 250 event.

This year’s WTA 500 and ATP 250 tournament format will remain unchanged and the Rothesay International Eastbourne returns from 22 – 29 June.
