After a desert crossing caused by covid-19, we find ourselves once again organizing another Seixal Ladies Open. In the third edition of the Seixal Ladies Open we venture into a competition with a Prize Money of $25.000 inserted in the World Tennis Tour 25S.
With this tournament we consolidate our credibility and performance in our sports agenda and increase our international visibility. We have
great expectations for this event and the conviction that we will do everything to rise to this important challenge.
Although it is a laborious process, it is simultaneously rewarding because of the contributions of partnerships and sponsors who share our enthusiasm and allow us to realize this
We would like to highlight the Seixal Town Hall, the Corroios Parish Council and the Portuguese Tennis Federation which, in addition to their decisive support and help, have, from the very first moment, cared for and encouraged us in the pursuit of this goal. I would also like to thank all of our sponsors who have greatly contributed to the success of this tournament. To Águias Unidas Club, for making available two training courts for the tournament athletes. To all, our recognition and deep gratitude for making possible this 3rd Edition of the Seixal Ladies Open.
To the participants and their companions, to the technical teams and support staff, to the
visitors in general: we welcome you all to this
event, to our club, to the parish of Corroios, and
to the municipality of Seixal. We will spare no
efforts to make your stay with us the best
possible and sincerely wish to welcome you
again next year.
I would like to congratulate the Clube Recreativo e Desportivo Brasileiro Rouxinol for holding another edition of the Seixal Ladies Open, a well-organized international tennis event, framed by an excellent landscape with the Corroios
mainland and the Bay of Seixal in the background. It will certainly be another
great calling card for Portuguese tennis, but also what the Seixal Council and the CRDBR represent and aspire to. Not only in tennis with a very important and very qualified development
So, once again, our congratulations to those who visit us, those who participate in this initiative, and especially for the community that is to be congratulated once again for the excellent organization of this event, which dignifys not only the Parish of Corroios, but also the Council of Seixal.
This is the third edition of the Seixal Ladies Open, which is part of the professional circuit of the International Tennis Federation (ITF). Once again, the C.R.D.B.R. will animate Corroios with this international event, which also counts with the participation of Portuguese tennis players, and is an example of the organizational
skills of our national clubs.
The Portuguese Tennis Federation praises the organization of the
Seixal Ladies Open and congratulates the W25 promoter club for creating another competitive space in our country, so that the Portuguese tennis players can gain experience and improve competing against world-class players. The competition is very important for the growth of tennis players, many of them with dreams of a professional career.
Holding another tournament in Corroios is also
a demonstration of the growth and improvement of Portuguese tennis over the last decade. Not only has the number of events on the ITF Women’s World Tennis Tour (but also on the men’s circuit) increased, but events of superior quality have also been organized under the Portuguese flag.
It is with great pleasure that the Seixal Ladies Open returns to the Clube Recreativo e Desportivo
Brasileiro Rouxinol, the parish of Corroios, and our municipality. This is another initiative organized
by popular associative movement, local government body, and support of the tennis
association and federation. Nowadays, we live in a society with sedentary habits, in which
sports are increasingly important. The community groups have been assuming a decisive role in counteracting these habits, becoming a social space and health promoter, and having the local government body as their greatest partner.
The officers, technicians, athletes, and practitioners, have in the local collectivities a School of Life. I congratulate each one of you for the work you develop with gusto! In a pandemic context, the parish council of Corroios responded with measures meeting the needs of the population and seeking its proximity, maintaining a public service with quality, and permanent articulation with the community.
With proximity, involvement, and participation,
aiming at social cohesion and sustainable
development of the parish, we are implementing
various actions and projects that meet the
needs of the community.
The Seixal Ladies Open and also the Corroios
Open are synonymous of the strengthening
and proximity to cultural and sports associations
and social solidarity institutions. The village of Corroios welcomes everyone who wants to visit us and participate in this fantastic initiative.
I would like to leave here a few words, but well deserved, to the board of directors, social entities, and partners,
who joined efforts once again to accomplish this arduous task. After the interregnum caused by the covid-19 pandemic, the CRDBR board of directors resumes the organization of another edition of this important event.
I am very honored by the invitation from C.R.D. Brasileiro Rouxinol to be the director of the W25 Seixal Ladies Open 2022 tournament. For my part, I pledge my commitment and availability to help make this tournament more and more a sporting event of reference in our region.
As always, I ask all tennis lovers to grace us with
their presence during the tournament.
