More big names confirmed for final big tennis event of the year as attendance boom continues
Tennis is booming around the world and that is confirmed by the huge crowds attending tournaments in 2023.
Last week’s Davis Cup Finals were played before sell-out audiences in Malaga and that backed up a stunning event at the ATP Finals in Turin, where bumper attendances saw Novak Djokovic win the title for a record seventh time.
It may feel like the tennis year came to an end as Jannik Sinner guided Italy to Davis Cup Final glory, but there is one more huge event to look forward to next month as the Ultimate Tennis Showdown (UTS) Finals are coming to London.
After an epic 2023 season, UTS London will showcase the Grand Final at ExCeL London (15 – 17 December 2023), which will crown the Champion of this year’s UTS League.
Holger Rune, Casper Ruud, Gael Monfils, Andrey Rublev and Britain’s Jack Draper are confirmed to play, with Diego Schwartzman, Benoit Paire and Alexander Bublik completing the line-up in London.
Keith Prowse is offering a wide range of hospitality packages – including guaranteed prime court tickets – for the UTS Finals in London, with prices from £210 per person for exclusive access to one of the most exciting events of the tennis year…and the perfect Christmas present or party!
HUGE APPETITE FOR CORPORATE HOSPITALITY IN TENNIS
In a post-pandemic world, the appetite for in-person corporate and personal entertainment experiences has more than returned – case-in-point, (and all of the tennis hospitality puns intended), by the start of April 2023, all of Keith Prowse’s (Wimbledon’s Official Hospitality Partner) premium packages for Wimbledon 2023 had officially SOLD OUT.
This was the earliest on record, but Wimbledon 2024 will eclipse that record, with 95 percent of tickets ALREADY sold out for The Championships next year, with Centre Court packages now more or less fully sold out
After nearly two years of off-and-on lockdowns, the value (and ‘giftability’) of tangible, memorable experiences and ‘premiumisation’ has risen dramatically – often to the detriment of material goods, as has been observed during Black Friday just gone
On the B2B side, employers definitely still understand the benefits of hospitality, from boosting morale and staff retention to building on new and old business relationships and ultimately, increasing sales and revenue.
UTS is the brainchild of tennis super-coach Patrick Mouratoglou, who has worked with some of the game’s biggest stars from Serena Williams to Simona Halep and Holger Rune
UTS is the world’s newest professional tennis league. Imagine a reinvented, ‘fast and furious’ tennis format consisting of 40-minute intense matches and an emphasis on fan interaction – featuring mic’d-up players and coaches, courtside entertainment and more.
This is tennis for the younger generation and that is why it has proved to be such a huge success around the world.
Keith Prowse is offering a range of packages to watch the action at the ExCel Arena, with tickets selling out fast.
Here is the full line-up for UTS London (December 15 to 17) 😍
