“These Championships are our flagship event and players come together to compete from all areas in Cumbria. For those not competing, it is a super opportunity to come along and watch some great tennis”

“We are thrilled to support the Cumbria County Championships again this year. It is a privilege to support the county-wide event and see the dedication and enthusiasm all participants bring to the sport and the tournament.”

This year’s tournament hopes to see the return of Logan Cowan, who last year won 18U Boys Singles, Men's Singles & Doubles and Mixed Doubles, as well as Isla Charnock who last year won 14U & 16U Girls Singles & 14U & 18U Mixed Doubles.
The Cumbria County Tennis Championships have also been a platform for emerging tennis talents, with past winners going on to play at Wimbledon. Freddy Blaydes from Cumbria, who became Men’s County Champion in 2021, made his debut at Wimbledon this year, winning matches in the Boys’ Singles draw and Boys’ Doubles draw.
Good luck to everyone taking part in this year's championships!
