The below table shows the number of entries in each discipline since 2014 (the mens and ladies singles being grouped together for this purpose between 2014 and 2018).

Taking these average entries with the entry fees for each, the prize fund of £6,000 would be broken down as follows (all amounts shown are per team). This is on the assumption that sponsorship is found to cover the running costs of the tournament of approximately £2,000 (see Sponsorship page). The more entries we receive the bigger the prize pot and the higher these amounts could be (should a lower number of entries be received than the average, the prize pot will be reduced accordingly). The prize money for the Open Under 25 Singles will be announced once entrants are known.
