It will be the third international ITF 60,000 event with the best international women’s tennis that will be held in the capital of Alava and has become the most important tournament in the Basque Country.
The PEÑA VITORIANA TENIS CLUB remains firmly committed to women’s tennis. The club from Alava will organize its third edition of the III World Tennis Tour W60 “Open Grupo Amutio”.
This is the most important tennis tournament in Euskadi, scoring for the international circuit and supervised by the International Tennis Federation (ITF). In spite of the attempts to aspire to more and turn the event into an ITF 100,000, the difficulty to obtain economic resources has made us reject this option this year and continue betting on a W60,000, which is the amount in prizes. That will not be an impediment to see on the courts of the Peña Vitoriana the best international rackets from the number 100 of the WTA world ranking. About 120 players from more than 20 countries will attend the event, which will be structured in three parts:
-Tournament Isa del Campo: July 9-16 (the winner will get a place for the ITF60,000).
-Preliminary phase: July 17-19
-Final phase tournament: July 19-24.
A total of 31 matches of the pre-preliminary phase (Isa del Campo tournament), 18 matches of the preliminary phase, 31 matches of the final phase, as well as 15 double matches will be played at the Vitoria club.
The 2021 data confirm the success of this tournament, with 400 people attending the final between Rebeca Masarova and Ane Mintegi, the 2021 Wimbledon junior champion, with victory for the former. More than 2,000 people watched a match live. In addition, 500 people attended the activities parallel to the tournament, such as the Tennis Street to be held in the Plaza de la Virgen Blanca to bring tennis to all citizens of Vitoria-Gasteiz.
The tournament is part of the VOLEA program.
A firm commitment to tennis in its different sporting and social areas. PEÑA VITORIANA TENIS CLUB has already activated several of its activities to follow the philosophy of the Volea program: to promote the sport of tennis in all its areas, and in all groups, mainly in women’s sports and in the most vulnerable social groups.
