Felixstowe Lawn Tennis Club is pleased to present its summer list of tournament events. This year we will be holding 5 main tournaments.
UK Pro League Tournament – new tournament
This is a new addition to our annual calendar and we look forward to welcoming the event to FLTC. The UK Pro League (formally the UK Pro Series) is a season-long competition to crown Britain’s Men and Woman Champions. It a chance to see up and coming players compete.

ITF World Tennis Masters MT200 - 9th Year
This tournament caters for all age groups. It’s configured in 5year stages from 35 to 85 years of age. The ITF senior tournaments are held all over the world and allow players from elite to recreational levels to play and earn ranking points. This will be the 9th year Felixstowe has hosted the ITF Seniors Tournament. This year will be an MT200 event. This means more ranking points for those taking part.

LTA British Tour
Our first event will be the British Tour, formally known as the East of England. This tournament has been running for well over 100 years and this year is classed as a premier event. Over the years we have seen many talented players taking part at the tournament. 2021 was no exception. The winner of our lady’s tournament was Emma Raducanu who went on to play at Wimbledon and win at the US open. Let’s hope she returns again this year.
The British Tour runs from Monday 26th June to Saturday 1st July. Free entry.
LTA's Summer County Cup Event
LTA's Summer County Cup Event – commonly known as ‘County Week’ – is possibly the oldest tennis event on the domestic calendar, dating back as far as 1895.
This year we host the men’s group 6. 44 counties across the nation are divided into groups based on their results of the previous year’s event with Group 1 being the ‘premier league’. Teams compete against each other over a week to see which team comes out as champions.
