Next Tournament: 15th November 2017 – 22nd November .2017
Location: O2 Arena, London
Surface: Indoor Hard
Only the best eight singles players and best eight doubles teams of the season qualify for the prestigious Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.
This tournament really only has the best players of the world so this event guarantees the best tennis. Whilst this is great tournament and the players obviously want to win, the atmosphere is more relaxed and therefore this truly makes it a fantastic tournament in London to see. Whilst other tournaments including Wimbledon and the French Open cannot guarantee the best players playing each other until maybe the semi-final and final, the ATP Finals can do so from the first day.
Unlike all other singles events, the ATP World Tour Finals is not a knock-out tournament. Eight players are divided into two groups of four and play three round-robin matches each against the other players in their group. The two players with the best records in each group progress to the semifinals, with the winners meeting in the final to determine the champion.
The associated APT World Tour consists of nine tournaments Grand Prix Style– Indian Wells, Miami, Monte Carlo, Roma, Madrid, Canada, Cincinnati, Shanghai and Paris.
Official Ticket Box Office
Like with all major events tickets can be purchased directly from the venue here as well as other primary ticket agents. This is surely the best way to get tickets but the chances are the event will be sold out for all times during the day.
Ticket prices range from £55 – £105
Each 12pm and 6pm begins with one doubles match and is followed by a singles match. The specific players for each round-robin session will be known 24-48 hours before each session begins.
Buying Tickets Outside O2 Arena- London
The O2 Arena is one of the only places in the UK where it is rare to see ticket resellers outside the venue. This is due to the fact that the O2 has a strict no-tout policy at the venue. Whilst the resale of tickets is legal (aside from football matches) the O2 Arena has a large area of land which it owns, hence how they can operate without touts.
ATP Finals Tickets are therefore best purchased prior to arrival rather than getting to the O2 Arena without even the option of using local sellers.
