NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters



NECAs one of the most prestigious events on the ITF Wheelchair Tennis Tour, the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters invites the top eight men and women along with the top four quads for the official ITF year-end wheelchair singles championship. 

The round robin format, akin to the ATP World Tour Finals and WTA Championships, guarantees a player must face at least four of the top eight players in the world to gain the title.

In 2011 the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters moved outside the Netherlands for the first time, when it was held in Mechelen, Belgium, and returned to Mechelen in 2012.

The 2013 NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters was held on 5-11 November in Mission Viejo, Southern California. USA. alongside the 2013 ITF Wheelchair Doubles Masters.

The 2014 NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters will be held in London for the first time, at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, from from 26-30 November.

The NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters was initiated in 1994 to honour the top players who have shown dedication and professionalism to the sport, and it has fast became the most coveted trophy amongst the top players. At the same time it is an opportunity to show the general public and media that wheelchair tennis played at its highest level is not only challenging and dynamic, but also an exciting sport to watch.

After six successful years at its original home of the Indoor Sport Centre in Eindhoven, the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters moved in 2000, to Amersfoort, where an independent group had purchased the organising rights for this unique event. In 2006, the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters took place for the first time in Amsterdam at the Frans Otten Stadium where it remained until 2010.
