The BNP Paribas sponsorship has been fundamental in increasing the number of participants from less than 100, three years ago, to 176 entries this year. The event is a prestigious LTA official tournament which attracts children from England, Scotland, Wales, Channel Islands and France.
Players ranging from ages 8 to 21 took part in this multi-day tournament, beginning Monday July 27th, ending on Saturday August 1st.
