About the Event
With thanks to our hosts SotoTennis Academy and sponsors - Peninsula and Babolat.
Last year, The SotoTennis Academy Progress Tour International saw 64 players battle it out over five hard-fought competition days for the Winner’s Cheque of €1,000.00. In October 2021, in a Covid-19 safe environment, the tour returns to the home of SotoTennis Academy, who will play host to their third annual Progress Tour International event. The event looks set to be even bigger and better than last year, with fierce competition in the beautiful setting of Sotogrande, the opportunity to win a share of a substantial prize pot, as well as the chance to become part of Team Soto for the week...Venue
