Has anyone seen the 2006 calendar showing the Main, Challenger and Futures events for next year?

I know the Futures events are on the ITF website and the Main tour are on the ATP website but havn't found any of the Challenger events.

The calendar is only released 3 months at a time; there are constant changes so I guess they don't want to mislead people :shrug:

:scratch: Wouldn't doubt it if they waited until the week after Christmas.

Steve G has some of this info on his website (http://stevegtennis.com/atpres06.htm). The USTA has their calendar of confirmed events up on their website. Keep checking the ITF and ATP sites, as well as the individual federations since they organize the Challengers (and there is a list of the National federations on Steve G's links page).

I've noticed SteveG has finally added Sunrise to their 2006 calendar. It is the same week as last year (right before the week Miami begins), but it says it is a 25k event (it was 100k last year). It also says (IC) under what I believe to be the surface for the tournament. Surely this does not mean indoor clay?

Does anyone have any info on Sunrise 2006? Anything would be appreciated.

Fabulous that's what I wanted.

Can add British Challengers:

17th - 22nd April Cardiff (25k+H)
6th- 11th June Surbiton (50K+H)
18th-23rd July Manchester (25K+H)
24-29th July Nottingham (25k+H)
24-28th October Edinburgh (25k+H)
21-25th November Sutton (25k+H)

I assume that there may be an element of 'subject to confirmation' about some of these but I think you can be pretty sure.

Surbiton is late this time :eek: It was 30-5th last time I think. Anyway, hopefully I am recovered by that time, if so I will be going to surbiton :D

But Surbiton is still the second week of RG just like it was before, so the timing is the same and it should get a decent field. Selfishly, I hope you go again because you take excellent photos (and your photo of JMG is still on my homepage).

If I go, it will be with a press pass. The travelling isnt that bad, I quite like the event. So the images will be alot better, last time I went to surbiton, the positions werent good for photos, because I had no pass. Anyway, it was my first event too, since then I have improved with each event I have been to. Last time I managed to get some nice practice shots I think, but this time I hope to get some matchplay shots because of the situation you are located to take photos (if you are press). I really cant wait for the 2006 uk season :D Being at tennis events, is probably my favourite place to be!!

That list somebody typed of GB Challengers, some of those are Satellites/Futures, are they not? For example, the Sutton event.

Also, I am curious as to why the ATP are not staging a challenger in Week 2? There are always players looking to compete, even if Aus Open Quallies & 2 ATP events are running...
