Veneto Open warms up the engines

Now in its third edition, the tournament confirms its place among the eight on the international circuit

It’s official, from Sunday 16th to Sunday 23rd June the WTA 125 returns to Gaiba . Now in its third edition, the tournament is confirmed as one of the eight on the international circuit, the only one in Italy, on natural grass and can now be considered one of the most important events in the sporting panorama of our region.

The organizers of the Veneto Open in Gaiba have accustomed the public, the enthusiasts and every single citizen of the small town of Polesine, just over a thousand inhabitants, to pursuing objectives that on paper are very difficult to achieve. But this year too they succeeded and as in a dream from which no one wants to be taken away, some of the best tennis players in the world will be in Gaiba between Roland Garros and Wimbledon.

Just comparing these two tournaments to Gaiba is thrilling but in these parts, evidently, impossible challenges can materialize. The tournament is organized by the Gaiba Tennis Club, has a prize pool of 115 thousand dollars, is included by the Veneto Region among the “Major Events” of the area and, this year too, there will be no shortage of interesting news .

For example, the Veneto Region itself has established the Veneto Region Award which will be awarded to the best emerging tennis player and then, going into the merits of the technical innovations, the qualifying board, open to 8 players, will compete on the opening day to gain access to the last 4 available places in the main draw which will see 32 tennis players at the start. The confirmations, compared to the last edition, are the doubles draw with 8 couples competing and the collaboration with the Italian Tennis and Padel Federation and, obviously, that with the Women’s Tennis Association. This year the tournament will enjoy significant media coverage, the matches will be broadcast live on the SuperTennis TV channel and on the SuperTenniX digital platform.

Tickets, already on sale on the Clappit platform, will allow access to the central court, while entry to the Tennis Club will be free for the secondary courts. Everything is therefore ready for the third edition of the Veneto Open, all that is missing is the list of participating tennis players. Among these is the name that will enter its name on the tournament’s roll of honor after the Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck, winner in 2022, and the American Ashlyn Krueger, in first place in 2023.
