About



The second-ever World Tennis Day took place on Monday 3 March 2014 in a bid to promote tennis and increase participation among players around the globe.

World Tennis Day 2014 centred around a series of high-profile special events, produced by StarGames, featuring current and former professional players, enhanced by activities generated by the ITF’s National Associations around the globe.

In 2014, the number of cities hosting Showdown events increased from two to three, with events taking place in Hong Kong, London and New York. Each Showdown featured current or former professionals, all of whom have either been ranked No. 1 in the world or reached a Grand Slam final, if not both.
