Zhuhai Championships

The Zhuhai Championships are an ATP tennis tournament that is played on outdoor hard courts at the Hengqin International Tennis Center in Zhuhai, China.

The first Zhuhai tournament was played in 2019 with Alex de Minaur winning the singles and the Belgium duo of Sander Gillé and Joran Vliegen winning the doubles

No tournament was held in 2020 or 2021 for obvious reasons so 2022 was due to be the first time in three years that a tournament will be held but unfortunately, the 2022 competition also had to be canceled due to restrictions in place.
