ZzzQUIL Tennis Tour is a new tennis tournaments circuit organizing matches between professional male and female tennis players that take place in Italy and includes a minimum of three tournaments. The first tournament (Campionati Italiani Assoluti) is reserved for Italian players only, while the following ones are open to foreign players. Matches will be live streamed, on social media and on SkySport channels. A circuit that arises from the need to bring professional tennis back to the court, while waiting for the international circuit to resume after the coronavirus.
The regulation expects the participation of 32 (m) and 16 (f) professional players, selected on the ATP/WTA rankings basis. 8 of these tennis players (4 men and 4 women) will benefit from wild cards, assigned by the Italian Tennis Federation. The tournament has single-elimination and matches are played in the best of 3 sets (3rd set super tie-break until the quarterfinals); International tournament standards are provided for all tournaments.
Players’, coaches’ and staff’s safety is our main priority. It is mandatory to use safety devices, such as surgical masks and sanitizing gels on site. Social distancing, limited access and disinfection on site will be guaranteed. Upon arrival, a safety kit including personal towels, masks and gloves will be distributed to players. Disinfectant gel will be distributed at the Tennis Club.
