The International Tennis Federation (ITF) has given deadlines for the registration of players ahead of this year’s Lagos Open Tennis Championship.

The world tennis governing body on its website said that players willing to play in Future 4 (1st leg) of the competition in the men and women’s singles, as well as the doubles events, will have to register on or before 14:00 GMT of Thursday, September 13, while withdrawal deadline has been fixed for September 18.

Futures 4 will hold from September 30 with qualifying matches, while the Main draws serve off from October 1 with the final of the leg holding on October 6.

Prize money of $25,000 will be shared by players in Futures 4 in the men’s event, while the women share $25,000. Players are told to sign-in latest September 28 by 18:00 GMT

For the second leg (Futures 5), the deadline for registration is on September 20. Withdrawal can be done on or before October 25.

The grand finale of the 2018 Lagos Open Tennis Championship will hold on October 13, when the Governor of Lagos, Akinwunmi Ambode, will be the Special Guest of honour.
