Laura Robson set to take next step in tennis career with tournament director role at Nottingham Open

28-year-old Laura Robson has taken the next step in her career becoming the tournament director at the Nottingham Open.

The former British number one retired from tennis earlier this year after a string of injuries kept her away from the game for a long time. Ultimately the wrist and hip injuries took a toll and Robson transitioned into broadcasting working for BBC, BT Sport and Prime Video.

She also worked with the LTA to gain knowledge about event operations and tournament management. She'll have the chance to show what she learned next year when she serves as tournament director for the Nottingham Open and another ITF event.

She said:

“I’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to work on tournaments over the last year and a half with colleagues from the LTA. It will be brilliant to return to Nottingham as Tournament Director for the Rothesay Open. As a former player in the event and now looking at it through an operational lens, I have a whole new appreciation of the work that goes into delivering a world-class tournament and can’t wait to get started on preparations for 2023.”
