The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) (125K Series) is holding the Hua Hin Championships between 9th and 15th November.
In 2012, the Women’s Tennis Association introduced the WTA 125K Series of tournaments to provide an opportunity for new markets to showcase a professional women’s tennis product and offer lower-ranked and up-andcoming players additional opportunities to compete and earn prize money and ranking points. With $115,000 in on-site prize money and 160 ranking points awarded the champion, WTA 125K Series events are a level above top-tier ITF Women’s Circuit events ($100,000 prize money and 150 points for the champion). The Hua Hin Championships is one of six WTA 125K Series tournaments held in the 2015 season. Other events are held in Nanchang, China (week of July 27); Dailan, China (week of September 7); Limoges, France (week of November 9); Taipei, Chinese Taipei (week of November 16); and finally Carlsbad, California, USA (week of November 23).
