BOV Malta Tennis Masters Tournament in December

Ladies Top 6 Tournament returns for the first time since 2016

The BOV Malta Tennis Masters Tournament, contested by the top 8 male tennis players will be played between the 7th and 13th December 2020 at the Marsa Sports Club. The BOV Ladies Top 6 Tournament, last held in 2016 will make its return for what has become the traditional end-of-year local tennis bonanza.

The Men’s tournament will see the players split into two groups, with the top 2 players from each group contesting the semi-finals, with the final being held on Sunday 13th December 2020. The Women’s tournament will be a round-robin tournament also split into two groups with the to- ranking players in each group heading directly into the final. 

Dr David Farrugia Sacco, President of the Malta Tennis Federation stated that notwithstanding a very challenging year the MTF had seen all its tournaments being played and this year saw the Ladies event making a much awaited comeback. The established and seasoned players like Mathew Asciak and Elaine Genovese would be challenged by no less than five junior players in each event. 

“The BOV Tennis Masters is a firm fixture in Bank of Valletta’s calendar and we are delighted to see the return of the Women’s tournament this year,’ said Charles Azzopardi, Head of PR and Marketing at Bank of Valletta. ‘This tournament showcases Malta’s top talents in Tennis and we look forward to closely following the tournament and crowning the champions on the 13th December.”
