In Easton wins today for
Kyle Rae (over Ewan Moore), Ewen Lumsden, Hugo Coquelin, Aaron Dawson (in 3 sets that each went to a tie-break), Richard Bloomfield, Ali Habib, Jack Curtis, Marshall Tutu

Fewer Brits in the women's, but the British winners were
Katherine Barnes, Soumeya Anane (over 15 year old Georgiana Mititelu), Annabelle Lammas, Abigail Amos

I think both draws are a round robin with 4 groups of 5 players.

 Richard Bloomfield is a name from the past - Norfolk? I recall he did well at ATPNewport RI one strange year , unless I misremembered? 

eta 2010 Newport RI, reached the semis from nowhere!

 Thanks for the update, Lambda. 

you knew thered be a question! Is the UTR Pro tennis tour what was (or still Is?) the Progress Tour? 

And, more importantly , what is their funding model? its not sponsored, as far as I can tell, so is it from entry fees being high or is this a bit like UKPL and the money comes from selling rights to gambling companies? Or some other investment model? 

thanks ! 

ps I probably will have asked both these before, its sort of bumph! but hopefully I havent!

So as I understand it they are organised by The Progress Tour. I see The Progress Tour as an organisation that offers events at various levels rather than being a Tour per se. They are more about offering individual money events rather that being an annual competition. The PTT events being the highest level they offer. I've no idea about their funding model.

You can rest easy, you haven't asked this before. smile

 Haha, thanks Lambda. 

Maybe CD will know about how it is funded, I think theyve paid attention to this series of events, and UTR generally, for a while?
