With the celebration in Gran Canaria (Maspalomas) of the two ITF Women’s Professional Tennis Tournaments W60 Disa Gran Canaria and W60 Conde Jackson Maspalomas, both of which are valid for the WTA world ranking, a women’s professional tennis tournament tour is definitively consolidated on an international level in the Canary Islands.
We are not only mentioning two women’s tennis events of the highest level and with maximum media and sporting repercussions, but also that their celebration will give great visibility to the destination, as a result of the ideal conditions in terms of local climatology and other benefits offered by our island. For two weeks, the Tournaments will become the world epicentre of women’s professional tennis, as well as a showcase that will attract both professional and amateur tennis players in the future, who will have the chance to get to know and train in our land 365 days a year in the open air, attracted by excellent facilities and the best climate in the world. The two $60,000 ITF tournaments to be held in Maspalomas will be the major tennis event of the year at regional level, as they are the highest category tournaments that have been celebrated in the Canary Islands for decades.
The celebration in Gran Canaria of a tour with two consecutive international women’s tournaments of $60,000 in the unique surroundings of Maspalomas, will be a significant boost to the revival of professional sport and the local economy, all focused on the promotion of women’s sport as a growing social phenomenon.
Our sporting events will have unparalleled media coverage in the Canary Islands, where the most important national and international platforms will be involved in their broadcasting. The broadcasting of 10 tennis matches live from Maspalomas on the Eurosport television platform, the permanent broadcasting via Live Streaming worldwide, as well as two monographic programmes on the Teledeporte channel of Televisión Española (TVE) will promote and spread the word about our sport, the excellence of our islands as a destination and its potential.
With the celebration of these two consecutive tournaments for this category, the island of Gran Canaria becomes the only region in the world where the players, with a single accessible trip thanks to our connectivity as a tourist destination, can play two $60,000 tournaments consecutively, avoiding additional travel expenses to other countries or cities to compete, thereby encouraging their promotion and improvement in the world ranking.
