Edgbaston Priory Club is proud to host the LTA’s Nature Valley Classic, which will take place from 15 – 23 June. The tournament has a unique place in the history of sport in the Midlands and is the most prestigious annual women’s sports event in the region. Every year it attracts some of the biggest stars in women’s tennis as they play for one trophy named after Birmingham’s first women’s Wimbledon champion, Maud Watson. This year’s event is set to feature the strongest line-up in its 38-year history with current world No.1 Naomi Osaka along with defending champion, Petra Kvitova, and British No.1 and Fed Cup heroine Johanna Konta. As well as world-class live tennis, this year’s Nature Valley Classic will also boast plenty of entertainment during a day out at the tennis. Live bands and musicians from across the region will be performing every day and West End musical star Steph Parry will be singing live on court ahead of the singles final on Sunday 23 June. Fans can also visit the free Explore Wimbledon exhibition, shop in the retail areas or relax at the courtside bar or family barbecue area.
