The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) announced on July 4th that the women’s professional tennis will return to Singapore in 2025 with the staging of a WTA 250 tournament.

‘wtatennis.com’ stated that the purpose-built Kallang Tennis Hub in Singapore will host the event on indoor hard courts during the week of January 27th next year (replacing the Thailand Open in Hua Hin) and will feature a 32-player singles draw and 16-team doubles draw.

St. Petersburg (US)-based the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) is the principal organizing body of women’s professional tennis. It governs the WTA Tour, which is the worldwide professional tennis tour for women, and was founded to create a better future for women’s tennis.

The WTA 250 is a category of tennis tournaments in the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) tour implemented since the reorganization of the schedule in 2021. Earlier, these events were classified as the WTA International Tournaments. At their introduction in 2021, the WTA 250 tournaments’ prize money was approximately $250,000.

The 1,297-capacity Kallang Tennis Hub is a tennis court in Kallang, Singapore. It is located along Stadium Boulevard (a major public access road) adjacent to the Kallang Field (home to Singapore’s cricketers, the field is also used for softball) and is part of the Kallang Sports Centre. It is located just outside the Central Business District (CBD) area.

The Hua Hin Championships is a women’s tennis tournament on the WTA Tour played on the outdoor hard courts in Hua Hin, Thailand. It is currently held in February following the Australian Open.

‘wtatennis.com’ further stated that the tournament will provide a welcome return to Singapore which staged the WTA Finals for five years from 2014 to 2018 and included an honor roll of Serena Williams (American former tennis player) and Caroline Wozniacki (Danish tennis player).
