If you missed out on tickets to Wimbledon, but find yourself hankering for some on-court action, here’s everything you need to know about the Hopman Cup, which is taking place next week in Nice.  

The Hopman Cup, an exciting tennis competition where mixed gender teams play for their national country, is coming to the Nice Lawn Tennis Club from 19th to 23rd July.  


Mixed doubles teams compete for their nations in this thrilling tournament alongside a series of men’s and women’s singles matches. Each win garners a point for the team or country.  

The matches are played to the best of three sets, with a tie-break as the third set. The top teams from each group then move onto the finals until a single winning team is declared.  

The tournament is attracting some big names this year, the likes of Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz and his compatriot Rebeka Masarova as well as France’s Richard Gasquet and Alizé Cornet. Denmark’s Holger Rune is also expected to play.

The competition has been on hiatus for three years, so the return, which was announced in December 2022 by the International Tennis Federation, will be warmly welcomed by fans in the region and beyond.  

Mayor of Nice Christian Estrosi is particularly happy to have the Hopman Cup back, saying, “This event confirms once again that Nice is a privileged destination for the biggest international sporting events. After the Grand Départ of the Tour de France in 2020, the Top 14 semi-finals in 2022, the Hopman Cup will precede the Rugby World Cup by a few weeks, and then the arrival of the Tour de France in July 2024. Tennis is a major sport in Nice, a discipline that has a strong history, with a club that is more than a hundred years old, and great players who have marked French tennis.”


For match-goers, there will not only be fantastic tennis viewing on offer, but top-drawer catering and live music. It’s a much more informal and relaxed occasion than some of the more highbrow tennis tournaments. 

The bar will be open from 3pm for cocktails and snacks, one hour before the first match of the day, and a dinner service starts at 8pm.  

DJs will keep the party going at night in a dedicated, on-site lounge area.
