Hunstanton Lawn Tennis Tournament

Details

Hunstanton Lawn Tennis Tournament started in 1920 and quickly became a popular event attracting entrants from Norfolk and beyond. Today it remains the UK’s largest tennis tournament and arguably the most popular grass tennis tournament in the world.

The tournament takes place in August on 38 grass courts located on the southern edge of the famous Norfolk seaside town of Hunstanton. It is an open tournament catering for the most experienced players down to enthusiastic beginners. It covers all ages from the senior veterans down to ‘under twelves’ and if time permits there is also a ‘round robin’ for even younger players.

A committee of 16 passionate tennis players/fans run the event each year and it is supported by a range of sponsors and trade exhibitors. The main tournament sponsor for 2019 is currently being finalised. Kett Country Cottages are sponsors of the Web Site There is a café / deli on site and in recent years a licensed bar has added to the range of refreshments.

The trade stands offer a wide variety of products and services including specialist foods, artisan jewellery, health and massage, handicrafts and a wide range of clothing to suit all tastes. There are also a host of local attractions including bird reserves, galleries, Sandringham House and Norfolk’s lovely coastline when you are not competing.

Children welcome
