The British tennis summer will then roll onto the Rothesay Open Nottingham, where 2022 Madrid Open winner and world No.7 Ons Jabeur is on the entry list. Both Prime Video and the BBC will broadcasting the WTA 250 event. The concurrent ATP Challenger tournament at the Nottingham Tennis Centre will also be on BBC digital platforms.

Grass court tournaments will then conclude with the Rothesay International Eastbourne from 18th June, where eight of the world’s top ten women will compete in a high-quality field for the WTA 500 event.
The Devonshire Park courts in Eastbourne will also stage an ATP 250, which will be exclusively on Prime Video. All the women’s tennis action will be broadcast live on Prime Video and the BBC’s platforms.
