This is 13th year that Sutton Tennis & Squash Club (STSC) has hosted these events.
The British Tour tournament that Sutton hosts, continues to be the “stand out event” of the tournament calendar where prize money at all levels is boosted through the support of additional local sponsors.
This is 7th year that “Boadicea The Victorious” perfume brand has agreed to be our lead sponsor. David Crisp, Chief Executive of Boadicea, who lives locally in Carshalton, is an outstanding example of an individual who generously supports “grass roots” tennis.
We would also like to thank Newfi Limited for their continued support in 2022 and recognise the generosity over the years of a number of our own members, including Pat Webster, Wendy Ferrell, Barry Smythe and David Beckman. Thank you.
The Management Committee is acutely aware that our tennis membership as a whole are also so supportive of this event. Agreeing to the use of our courts for a whole week to host this event does bring with it some inconvenience. We do hope that members will take this opportunity to come down to the club and enjoy some fantastic tennis, who knows, maybe even to witness some more tennis stars of the future.
Again, Sutton Highfields LTC have very kindly agreed to the use of their 4 courts throughout each day, helping us to manage the programme of tennis matches for both the British Tour event and the numerous age category Grade 3 junior tournaments.
We have catering and bar facilities throughout the week from 9am till 10pm, managed by our Bar Manager Kerry and ably supported by Chris, Antonio and the familiar faces of our regular bar team.

Finally, on behalf of the Management Committee, may I take this opportunity to extend your thanks to the “Tournament Committee”, members, Jason Smythe, Steve Lewis, Chris Pike and of course their chair, Steve Tiddy. Without Steve’s continued energy and enthusiasm for tennis at this club, who after all does 90% of the work on this committee, the British Tour at Sutton would not be the success it is and continues to be each year.
