The Seoul Corea Open 2024 International Wheelchair Tennis Championships will be held from February 2-6 at the Seoul Olympic Park Tennis Stadium.

Organized by the Korea Para Tennis Association, the Seoul Mayor’s Para Sports Association, and the International Tennis Federation (ITF), and sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Korea Sports Promotion Agency, the Seoul Metropolitan Government, and the Korea Para Sports Association, the tournament will feature 130 athletes from 25 countries including Korea, the United States, the Netherlands, France, Brazil, England, Turkey, Israel, Slovakia, Mali, Morocco, China, Taiwan, Thailand, and Japan, along with more than 100 officials, competing for a total prize fund of $32,000 in the ITF 1 Series (Grade 1).

Competition will be held in men’s and women’s singles and doubles, with 28 athletes competing in the quadriplegic category.

Notable players include Korea’s top-ranked player Lim Ho-won (Sportsoto – World No. 16), who was the runner-up in the doubles event at the ITF Busan Open on the 23rd, ‘World No. 4’ Martin Delapuente (Spain) and ‘World No. 5’ Gordon Reid (Great Britain), while the women’s event is expected to be a battle between Korea’s strongest player Park Joo-yeon (Sportsoto), ‘World No. 3’ Jiske Griffion (Netherlands) and ‘World No. 5’ Zhu Jinjian (China).

World No. 42 Cha Min-hyung, World No. 3 Guy Sasson (Israel), 바카라사이트 World No. 4 David Wagner (USA) and World No. 5 Donald Ramohadi (South Africa) will also be aiming for the top spot in the quad category.

The tournament kicks off today with five days of qualifying and semifinals in each event, followed by the finals on the sixth.

In order to participate in ITF (International Tennis Federation) Tour events, athletes must have an IPIN (classification), and the Korea Para Tennis Association invited an ITF classifier to the Busan Open (March 19) so that all Korean athletes could receive a classification examination in Korea.

UNIQLO, the official sponsor of the ITF International Wheelchair Tennis Tour, also provided 600 pieces of UNIQLO performance sportswear to more than 600 tournament staff and volunteers for three international wheelchair tennis tournaments in Korea this year, including the Seoul Corea Open 2024.

“This is the only international wheelchair tennis tournament in Seoul, sponsored by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and supported by the Seoul Mayor’s Association for Para Sports,” said an official from the Seoul Corea Open. “We hope that many citizens will be interested in and participate in this tournament, which is expected to expand the scope of wheelchair tennis in Korea and increase the brand value of the city.”
