Steve Darcis beats Marcus Willis in Liverpool International final.
Steve Darcis (BEL) won the 16th Liverpool Hope International Tennis Tournament beating Marcus Willis (GBR) 7-5 6-3 in glorious conditions at Liverpool Cricket club today.
Willis, who incredibly made it to the the second round of Wimbledon last year having won two qualifying events, was playing in Liverpool for the first time. Willis is hoping to get a wildcard into the Wimbledon main draw this year and his match against Darcis (ranked 330 places higher in the ATP rankings) has been fantastic preparation for the British hopeful. The final was evenly matched, despite the ranking difference, and thoroughly enjoyed by the Liverpool crowd giving Willis a huge boost of confidence as the summer grass season really kicks off in London next week.
The Women’s Singles final was won by Polona Hercog (SLO) who beat Corrina Dentoni (ITA) 6-2 6-4.

During the Festival of Tennis we are offering free tennis lessons to the general public and our event partners are allowed to put branding around the court. Liverpool One’s weekly official footfall is more than 700,000 per week. A full size tennis court is put down in the heart of Chevasse Park and last year more than 2000 people came on court to try tennis for the first time.
During late afternoons we are running a Corporate Tennis Tournament where all our sponsors and partners are invited to take part.
The prize ceremony of the Corporate event takes place at a Black Tie Tennis Gala Dinner hosted by Liverpool Hope University on the 10th of June.
This is an incredible evening hosted by Liverpool Hope University to celebrate their involvement as Headline Sponsor of the International . It is a Black Tie event and takes place at amazing Great Hall in Liverpool and more than 250 guests are expected. All our event sponsors are invited and it is a great place to network and establish new business relationships.
Liverpool kids and Northern Vision officially smashed the world record for the largest ever tennis lesson according to the Guinness Book of Records – beating the marker set by Judy Murray in March 2014. An amazing 680 kids took part in the record at The Liverpool Cricket Club which is great for all the kids involved.
Each year we introduce around 5000 kids to tennis and sport. 2000 kids are invited to our Kids day Only during the International (17th of June 2015) were they are introduced to tennis and also are invited to watch the qualifying finals.
Our event sponsors are invited to do promotion during this day and it is perfect way to use the day for Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR) purposes.
We are trying to engage with the kids as fom the age of 5 and upwards to get involved with sport in order to fight obesity, crime etc and of course hope that there is a potential Tennis Champion coming from the region.

More than 350 players from 50 different nations have expressed an interest to take part in the inaugural Collector Norwegian Open which is a huge compliment to Oslo and the organisers Northern Vision. Tournament Director Anders Borg says, “this actually has a bigger reach than the World Championship in skiing in Oslo 2011, a lot of us were disappointed after Norway decided somehow not to go for the Olympics in 2022 but we have enough nations coming to Oslo next week to have a miniolympics at Oslo Tennis Arena.
The cream of Norwegian tennis will be able to fight for ranking points against some very stiff foreign competition. Melaine Stokke, Emma Flood, Victor Durasovic and Casper Ruud are all looking to impress on home ground. Casper Ruud says, “playing in front of your own crowd is just as important for tennis players as it is for football players, its a special experience to feel the spectators wanting you to win and hopefully we can have some good home wins.
