The GANT Championships at London’s Roehampton Club is a new, intimate pre-Wimbledon international tennis event. Built on the great history of the popular Roehampton Cup, that attracted the world’s best players to the historic Roehampton Club for many years. GANT, the original American lifestyle brand, are reviving the event this June, with 3 matches taking place each day.
Becker, Ivanisevic, Chang, Murray, Hewitt, Cash and Krajicek were just some of the iconic Grand Slam champions who enjoyed playing at Roehampton, as they fine-tuned their grass court games ready for Wimbledon.
The GANT Championships is set to the tradition of the worlds leading tennis stars of today and tomorrow. Built around a ‘Now vs Next’ format – driven by the brand’s credo of ‘Never Stop Learning’, guests will see the ever popular Fernando Verdasco and Richard Gasquet, fast-rising superstar Hyeon Chung and America’s next sensations, Frances Tiafoe among the early entries of the GANT championship matches.
Taking place across the 28th, 29th and 30th of June 2018, attendance limited to 800 spectators so every seat is close to the action, although still giving the GANT Championships a unique feel of world-class grass court tennis, in an English, country garden setting.
The GANT Championships are also proud to be the first UK event to use the ATP’s Next Generation Fast Four scoring system, a format which will see an energetic and fast face 5 set match ensuring entertaining tennis.
Attendees will also have the chance to participate in activities for all the family. GANT will also run a pop-up shop on site stocking a selection of their Spring / Summer 18 collection, including their tennis ready polo shirts.
Speaking of the launch of the first GANT Championships, UK Managing Director Ferguson Patterson commented-
“We are extremely proud and excited to be announcing the first ever GANT Championships at Roehampton Club. Tennis is a natural environment for GANT as a brand that has been designed for an active lifestyle. Driven by our brand credo ‘Never Stop Learning’ the event encompasses this as we support leading future tennis talent and continue to push our business beyond clothes and stores”
