How to get UTS London tickets for the tennis Grand Final this December
Ultimate Tennis Showdown (better known as UTS) is coming to the Big Smoke for its Grand Final, and Keith Prowse is offering the best seats in the house for the spectacular showdown. Here's how to get hospitality tickets today.
This new professional tennis league is certainly no Wimbledon; Ultimate Tennis Showdown is a reimagined 'fast and furious' tennis format which offers looser rules and more fan interaction. So, if you'd like to swap strawberries and cream for mic'd-up players, coaches and courtside entertainment, allows us to point you in the direction of UTS.
UTS was created by the recent coach of Serena Williams and the founder of the Mouratoglou Tennis Academies, Patrick Mouratoglou. The professional tennis league has been running since 2020, but the recently confirmed line-up of tennis stars, such as Casper Ruud, Gael Monfils, Andrey Rublev and Wu Yibing, have truly gotten fans excited for the 2023 bout.
Speaking about the players, Mouratoglou said: "For me, a big part of UTS successfully engaging fans was always going to be around the players that we invited to help pioneer the sport. I believe that what makes a fan is emotional connection: getting to know a player, connecting with him and choosing to support; or the opposite – seeing an aspect of a player’s personality, and deciding to oppose him.
"We like sports because we like some people, and we dislike other people – we are emotionally involved. That’s why we’ve invited some of the most expressive, passionate, mercurial players on the Tour to be part of UTS".

What does UTS mean in tennis?
UTS stands for Ultimate Tennis Showdown, and it's considered a 'fast and furious' version of the tennis format.
The games work as follows: four quarters of eight-minutes with a simplified scoring system (one point won equals won point earned). The first player to win three quarters wins the match, and if players win two quarters each, it will go to a sudden death game. There are also bonus cards for tactics and gamification.
