Beautiful, tennis country. The city has been appointed to host the Hopman Cup, a mixed exhibition by nations, from 2023 and for the next five years. The International Tennis Federation (ITF) announced this in a press release on Tuesday.

As part of a five-year agreement between the ITF and Barcelona-based company Tennium, which works on many ATP and WTA events, the prestigious Nice Lawn Tennis Club will host the international mixed competition from 2023 to 2027.“We read in the press release.

Established in 1989 and last played in 2019, the Hopman Cup is always played in Perth, Australia during the first week of the season. Eight countries compete, represented by mixed doubles and divided into two pools.

Two French couples won the trophy: Alizee Cornet and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in late 2013, Kristina Mladenovic and Richard Gasquet in early 2017.

Changing the schedule of the new Nice resolution. the tournament will now be held in July, immediately after Wimbledon. Six countries will participate in 2023 and 2024, dropping to eight in 2025.
