The LTA has confirmed the dates of its summer grass court tournaments for 2022 promising an an exciting summer of British tennis.
The Birmingham Classic will take place from 11th to 19th June at Edgbaston Priory Club. The Classic forms part of the LTA’s summer grass court events which take place in the weeks leading up to The Championships, Wimbledon at the Nottingham Tennis Centre, The Queens Club, Edgbaston Priory Club and Devonshire Park in Eastbourne.
Last year’s events saw high quality tennis played throughout the summer. In Birmingham, Ons Jabeur beat Daria Kasatkina to become the first Arab woman ever to win a WTA Tour title and lift the Maud Watson Trophy. She went on to quickly establish herself in the world top 10.
This year’s events will allow fans to see leading British and international players at close quarters, and there will be a focus on inspiring a new generation of players to pick up a racket. Alongside the WTA event at Birmingham, there will also be a ITF Wheelchair Tennis Series title up for grabs.

Tickets for all events will go on sale in Spring 2022, and ticket holders who chose to roll over their tickets from cancelled events in 2020 will be contacted by the end of this year.
Scott Lloyd, LTA Chief Executive said: “Last year presented significant operational challenges because of the pandemic, but we were proud that every event we hosted was open to spectators and delivered high quality competitive tennis. This year we are looking forward to our tour level events helping open up tennis to new audiences and provide excitement and enjoyment to those attending or watching at home.”
