Dates set for Mubadala World Tennis Championship


The Mubadala World Tennis Championship will return to Abu Dhabi’s sporting and entertainment calendar from December 16–18.

Six of the world’s top male tennis players and two of the game’s top female players will once again go head-to-head during three days of top-class tennis action in the UAE capital.

Championship owners Flash Entertainment confirmed the tournament dates this morning and announcing that fans can now pre-register for tickets on the official Mubadala World Tennis Championship website.

“The 14th edition of the championship will once again feature the sport’s best male and female players and we are paying special attention this year to our off-court entertainment,” said John Lickrish, CEO of Flash Entertainment.

The championship will feature engaging fan activations in addition to a variety of exciting and entertaining activities for sports enthusiasts. Top-seeded players will join ticket holders for meet and greet events, affording spectators a chance to interact with their sporting heroes.

Last year, Russian Andrey Rublev beat Andy Murray in the final in straight sets to win his first Mubadala World Tennis Championship title. Tunisia’s most successful female tennis player, Ons Jabeur, defeated Olympic Gold Medalist Belinda Bencic to become the first Arab to compete in, and win the Championship. Jabeur then followed up her Abu Dhabi success by reaching this year’s Wimbledon final at SW19.

The event will take place at the International Tennis Centre in Zayed Sports City.
