Postet av Norske Tennisveteraner den 14. Mai 2024

Budapest will host the 2025 edition of the European Masters Championships, Tennis Europe can reveal. The event – Europe’s flagship senior tennis competition - is due to be hosted by the Hungarian Tennis Federation at its National Tennis Centre in early June 2025. 

The National Tennis Centre has a wealth of experience in organising high calibre international tennis events and has 22 clay courts at the disposal of the tournament. 

Gathering players of all age groups from Over 30s to Over 90s, the Masters Championships has been enjoying a boom in participation figures in recent years. The most recent edition, in 2023, atracted almost 300 players from 37 European nations, with other participants travelling from afield as Australia, Brazil, India, South Africa and the USA.  

With 1000 ITF World Tennis Masters Tour ranking points on offer to the champions, a European Championship gold medal is the ultimate prize for many senior players. Men’s and women’s singles and doubles, as well as mixed doubles competitions, are held for all age categories.

Tennis Europe CEO Thomas Hammerl said, “We are excited to bring the Championships to Hungary for the first time. Hungary has a particularly vibrant senior tennis community – in fact last year’s event in Croatia saw more participants from Hungary than any other nation – and so is the natural choice of host for such an event. Furthermore, the central European venue will be the ideal location for players travelling from across Europe – and beyond. We’re looking forward to working with the Hungarian Tennis Federation to create a memorable edition of the tournament.  

Secretary General of the Hungarian Tennis Federation Csilla Sütő said, “It is a great honour to host the European Masters Championships. Senior Tennis enjoys exceptional popularity in Hungary, as evidenced by the successful organization of this year's ITF MT1000 Körmöczy Zsuzsa Memorial Tournament, where nearly 600 participants competed on indoor clay courts. 2024 marks the 100th anniversary of our Roland Garros champion, Zsuzsa Körmöczy's birth, adding a special significance to this success in sports diplomacy. We are eager to host the European Masters Championships that will further strengthen Tennis Europe's role in the European tennis community, and hope that Hungary will be the organiser for another 2 years after a successful event in 2025.”
