Prize Money

The total financial commitment (including prize money) for the 2023 tournament was $713,495.

How the prize money was split by round for the singles and doubles events in 2023 is detailed below.

Men’s Singles

The winner of the ATP 250 Singles Event in 2023 received $97,760, with the runner up receiving $57,025.

As you can see in the table below, the Singles Prize Money for the 2023 tournament has increased from the prize money awarded for the tournament held in 2022.

The main reason for the big difference in prize money is the fact that spectators were not allowed to attend the tournament in 2022 so it is likely that this loss of revenue impacted the prize money that was awarded to the players that year.
