In 2017, The Progress Tour set out to fill a void that existed in the British Tennis landscape; there was a distinct lack of earning opportunities for British players on home soil; and player support was limited to just a select few. Three years on, and that void is still all too evident with too few ranking and prize money events on offer to players, relative to a nation of our extensive resources. In this period, The Progress Tour has seen over 1,200 players compete in over 3,000 level-based and progressive matches, and paid out over £40,000 in prize money, all of which independently sourced, and privately funded.
