I was thinking of going to watch some of these tournaments in the UK next year, but I can't seem to find any info on them.

I'm assuming they have spectators? Do they get many people watching? Do you have to have tickets or anything?

I'd like to go and watch some of the up and coming talent, and give some support to the British players. Anyone ever been before or have any info on this?

Hi,
I have been to Future's Events in Sunderland and Edinburgh and I haven't had to pay to get in. I'm assuming it's the same everywehere, but not sure. I haven't been to a challenger so that could be different. At the Future's in Sunderland there were no spectators, just coaches and families and centre staff. But in Edinburgh it was a final so there were a few people there.

I've just been taking a quick look around and it seems like entry is free  shockingSmile Definately might be worth going!

Still need definitive information though  confused I don't want to turn up and there be nobody else there at all LOL

Challengers are a step up from Futures, right? So I'm guessing they get a few more people there? I know they get some fairly well known players competing in Challenger tournaments becuase it's only one tier below ATP level.
