Format

The UK Pro League (known as the UK Pro Series in 2020) is a professional tennis tournament, where British pro tennis players compete in nine individual week-long qualifying events leading to a Final Week where the UK Pro Champion is decided.

Each event week is an individual week-long qualifying event where players earn League points in order to qualify for the UK Pro League Final week.

Each week consists of a 16 player men’s and 12 women’s draw with players split into four pools of 4 or 3 to play a round robin format ahead of playing quarter finals (only on the women’s side), semis and final ranking matches over the weekend.
