Qube Residential will be the headline sponsor of the popular tournament, which was first introduced by Northern Vision Sporting Events in 2002 as a grass-court warm-up event for Wimbledon. 

Since then, Northern Vision has introduced tennis to over 100,000 local juniors through its Liverpool-based events, including the Liverpool International Tennis Tournament and Liverpool Junior International Tennis Tournaments.

Anders Borg, managing director of Northern Vision Sporting Events, said: 

“It is a great privilege to bring this magnificent occasion back to Liverpool for the 21st year alongside Qube Residential as our headline partner once again, to display some of the best talent that tennis has to offer. 

“Over the years we have had some of the world’s most prestigious tennis names and the stars of the future compete on our grass courts in Liverpool ahead of Wimbledon, and it’s an honour to welcome back Neal and Marcus for this year’s event.
