If you are ready for a more formal, competitive experience, then you might consider an open singles event. These take place at a number of venues and are graded from 6 – 3 (where grade 3 is a higher standard) to help you identify an appropriate level of competition. Read more about the competition grading structure.

The events take place over one day or a set number of dates, they have an entry fee and can be part of a larger tournament. They provide an excellent opportunity to play some singles matches in a competitive environment, and results will be processed for ratings and rankings (grade 5 and above) purposes. You need an LTA Advantage account and ITF World Tennis Number to enter. You can use the Competition Search tool to find a competition.
