The Progress Tour returns to Norfolk after the success of its pilot event last November, partnering with Universal Tennis to deliver the biggest event in the county’s history.

Former Norfolk professional player and Norfolk Men’s Team Captain, Barry Fulcher, who heads up the event as Tournament Director said:  

Having grown up in Norwich, I’m really excited to bring an event of this calibre back to the city. Since the inception of the Progress Tour some years ago, I’ve been keen to return to my roots and host an event here in Norfolk, and the past twelve months has seen us raise the bar with each event.


This level of tennis is seriously impressive and the field is already shaping up to be the strongest yet. We look forward to running another great event on the fantastic indoor courts at Easton. It’s a great opportunity for the people of Norfolk to enjoy a high level of tennis on their doorstep.”

Matthew Breese, Head of Commercial Operations at Easton College, adds:

We were proud to host the Men’s PTT event at the end of 2022 which was the first event of its kind to take place in the UK. When Barry approached us about running a bigger $50,000 event at Easter, we couldn’t wait to get going with plans to make the event even bigger and better than last time. It’s great that our facilities here get to be showcased with events of this stature.”

Play begins Sunday 2nd April, and follows a Round-robin format for the first 5 days of the event, before the knockout phase begins on Friday 7th April with the finale taking place on Saturday 8th April, with a bumper day of action.
