Week 2: M25 & W25 Loughborough
Week 3: M25 Sheffield
Week 4: M25 & W60 Sunderland

I'm not sure if they will only be 2 mens or if they haven't all been uploaded yet.

Thanks for flagging!

January is a good time for a 60k, while lots of the eligible players are in Oz. Interesting that the LTA seem to be sticking with 25ks tho, given our big group in the top 200. But I think it makes sense as those players by definition have more funds to travel with.

I'm hoping a few players may try out the January Thai-Indian swing of the new 40ks too.

The 2 missing mens events have been added to the opening post.

Curious why Glasgow is only women. It must be the first time in years (ever?) that it hasn't been a mixed event.

Strange that the mens is weeks 2,3,4 and then 6 - why not 5 and just a random week 6?

For the women- ditto, weeks 2,4, 6 and 7? I wonder why 2 stands alone and isnt back to back with a second week - realise weeks 2 and 4 are different levels but a stand-alone week 2 seems strange ?

The women's 25s qualies tend to be filled by juniors, I don't know if the same is true of the men. There is a J3 in week 3 so holding a W25 in that week could mean it is not a full draw or very weak as most juniors usually playing in women 25s would be in the J3. The W60 is clearly timed in the expectation our women knocked out in qualies or R1 of AusO return so it can't be earlier.

 makes sense on that basis - and the 3 mens weeks make sense in 2,3,4. For men, though, a week 6 and 7 would seem more logical as opposed to a random week 6. Maybe UKPL is planned week 5

There looks to be a really nice calendar of 25, 40 and 60ks in Europe at the start of the year - a big improvement on last year certainly.

The new pro calendar has been released: www.lta.org.uk/news/new-performance-competitions-calendar-building-on-a-year-of-significant-success/

In addition to the 4x 25ks above, there are 3x25ks scheduled in Nottingham in consecutive weeks in April (ie. 1 less than last year).

The grass season looks unchanged, except for the addition of a 25k on grass in Notts in the 2nd week of Wimbledon, which seems fairly sensible.

The Uk pro league - contrary to my concerns over their accounts- has 7 weeks in half one of the year including one week planned on clay and one on grass. Significant growth .

I enquired about Ilkley tickets today and got this from the club - not sure what the changes are?

Hi Jon,

We believe that the Ilkley Trophy will be running from Saturday 17th June so will be the same week as Queens. It is our understanding that we have to wait for the LTA and ATP to confirm the final details as there have been some slight changes.

We will announce the release of tickets as soon as we know ourselves and these will be sold through the LTA website. If you follow us on social media this will be where we first announce the release.

Kind regards,

Ilkley Lawn Tennis and Squash Club

The only change I'm aware of Jon is on the women's side where hospitality now has to be provided. I don't know whether suitable accommodation would be easy to source around there? I assume the men already have hospitality provided?

 In the past theyve tended to use two hotels in the town - I guess it depends how far wide they go as Leeds, Harrogate are both within 10-15 miles with plenty of options in terms of every range of hotel. But Ilkley itself is fairly limited hotel wise, but air bnbs etc would be plentiful I would guess? 

thanks for the response though !

The women's feed up WCs are going well. Of the 6 MD WCs to have been played for so far for the 3 winter 25Ks, 3 have not been awarded as a non Brit won the event, 1 can't be used because Hannah isn't old enough, 1 has been won a college player who is presumably back in the US (Rajecki), and the final 1 has been won by Maloney who probably won't need it.

For the record the feed up WCs and the event they were won at are

Women (to be used in 1 of 3 Jan/Feb 25ks)
