The Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium is located between two of Dubai’s iconic destinations – the Century Village and the Irish Village. Since its launch in February 1996, the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium had many world-famous players like Federer, Djokovic and the Williams sisters along with thousands of other professional tennis players. Eventually, it has been voted “Best Venue” by players on the ATP World Tour.
Every year, the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium plays host to the annual Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships in February. When fully packed, it can host a total capacity of 5,000 people, VIP area and Royal enclosure, press office, press interview rooms, WTA and ATP World Tour offices, TV commentary boxes and changing rooms. Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium also offers group, semi-private and private lessons to all ages and levels of ability.
When the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium is not being used for the Championships, it serves as a leading concert venue, having played to acts such as Sting, Gerri Haliwell, Bryan Adams, Enrique Iglesias, Gloria Gaynor, Coolio, Shaggy, Sash, Boy Zone, Maxi Priest, Big Mountain and Bally Sagoo.
