WTA Finals To Be Held In Forth Worth This Year

PARIS, France – The 2022 edition of the WTA Finals will be held in Forth Worth, Texas from Oct. 31 – Nov. 7 under a one – year agreement, the women’s tennis body announced on Tuesday as the season – ending tournament returns to the United States after 17 years.

Last year’s tournament was held in Guadalajara, Mexico instead of Shenzen, China after the WTA removed the Asian swing of tournaments from its calendar due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The tournament was set to return to Shenzen from 2022 until 2030 but the WTA then suspended tournaments in China due to concerns over the treatment of former doubles world number one Peng Shuai.

‘The Dickies Arena and the city of Forth Worth has a proven track record of hosting world class sporting and entertainment events’, said Steve Simon, WTA Chairman and CEO.

‘We are excited to bring the WTA’s showpiece tournament back to the United States for the first time since 2005’.
