SINGAPORE – In its fourth edition, the 2017 WTA Future Stars initiative hits a new high with 48 qualifiers representing 21 countries across the Asia-Pacific, all gathering in Singapore to play against each other from October 17 – 22. Each country sends two representatives, one each in the U14 and U16 categories, with host city Singapore represented by nine participants this year.

Held in conjunction with the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global, the WTA Future Stars features the best of the U14 and U16 junior players from the region who will compete in Singapore at the Kallang Tennis Center. The champion matches will be played under the bright lights of the WTA Finals Center Court at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The WTA Future Stars platform was developed to showcase the best of Asia-Pacific’s next stars, and began with just 12 countries and 24 players in its first year. Since its inception in 2014, Singapore has welcomed more than 150 WTA Future Stars participants to compete against each other and alongside activities to breed friendship and encourage sportsmanship.
