We are looking for General Volunteers to work around the site at the Northern Lawn Tennis Club in Didsbury and help bring world-class tennis to Manchester! Volunteer shifts are now available to view and if you’re interested, sign-up for as many or as few of the shifts you can attend.
The Tournament runs from the 9th-16th June and will be the first tournament of the grass-court season, preparing players for Wimbledon. Sign-ups will be kept up-to-date with our Volunteer Newsletter and will receive information of their allocated shifts and roles nearer the time. For more information or for any queries, contact Tom Abbey on 0161 234 1314 or email@example.com
It is a key part of the British grass court season leading into The Wimbledon Championships, with our 2018 singles champion Ons Jabeur receiving a wild card into Wimbledon 2018, where she reached the 2nd round.
This event, which is in its 5th year, is a joint partnership between the Lawn Tennis Association, Manchester City Council, and the Northern Lawn Tennis Club. With over 3000 spectators attending in 2018 and a total prize money pot of $100,000, it typically attracts professional female players ranked between 70 and 200 in the world.
In addition to top class tennis matches, the event, through forging partnerships with the local community, is geared towards providing a legacy to tennis in Manchester. It has won awards including Manchester Tournament of the Year 2016, and the north-west Britain in Bloom award 2017.
A key legacy objective is to especially help promote and engage ‘Women in Sport’.
