We enjoyed inviting the sponsors of our ITF World Tennis Tour event to lunch at Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings as the countdown continues to October’s prestigious tournament. There are just fifteen weeks to go until the first ball is hit at the tournament.

A number of players currently playing at Wimbledon over the next couple of weeks, competed in last November’s W100 at The Shrewsbury Club, including Czech Republic star Karolina Muchova, runner-up in last month’s French Open women’s singles final at Roland Garros.

Dave Courteen, our managing director, said: “The costs involved with staging such a high-profile tennis tournament as the W100 increase every year, so we are extremely grateful for the continued support we receive from the Shropshire business community. It would not be possible to stage a tournament of this stature without their wonderful backing, so we enjoyed inviting them to a sponsors lunch at the Turned Wood Cafe at Shrewsbury’s iconic Flaxmill.

“It was a lovely event, the food was amazing and we were made to feel very welcome by the Turned Wood Cafe team. It was a wonderful setting to get our event sponsors together not only to thank them for their support, but also to explain all we have planned to make the event bigger and better. Among the new developments for 2023 are a hospitality village, which will include the Tie Break Cafe dedicated to spectators. 

"There will also be a black tie ball with live music and after-dinner entertainment from Duncan Murray, the 'other Murray brother', as well as an evening with the award-winning Tennis Podcast team.

“There’s lots of exciting planning happening right now as we look forward to staging what will be another fantastic tournament.”
