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. A more objective player support network is pivotal, providing every British player with the same opportunities.
The Progress Tour is a tournament structure which allows British players to stay in the UK, earn a living, and make their way in the professional ranks. Stay tuned for some exciting plans afoot for The Progress Tour in 2020.Continue reading “18 months on, and this is still my passion…”
