The Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships will return from March 7 to 20, organisers announced today.

The tournament will begin two weeks later than normal, featuring a field of 56 of the world’s best players.

“We are delighted to once again stage one of the key sporting events on the Dubai calendar, particularly as we mark the 21st running of the WTA week and the 29th year of the ATP tournament, both of which have garnered numerous awards over the years,” CEO of Dubai Duty Free Colm McLoughlin said.

Despite the pandemic, which has impacted so many sporting and other events around the world, the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships plans to welcome fans to the event, albeit with limited capacity.
