It was planned to develope the tennis site Brunswick even further with the help of another higher ranking tournament – the “Braunschweig Women’s Open”. Such a tournament made it possible to offer a platform to numerous ambitious players throughout Northern Germany where they could compare themselves to national and international standards.
The NTV did not only plan to strengthen the German tournament landscape in the North. They also wanted to support especially young players transitioning from Youth Tennis to the professional area. Therefore, they needed high ranking tournaments nearby – concerning this demand the “Braunschweig Women’s Open” were initiated.
