Mubadala World Tennis Championship returns to Abu Dhabi - yalla abu dhabi

It’s been an exciting couple of days for tennis fans as the sport saw two epic results at the weekend as UK starlet Emma Raducanu claimed the Women’s US Open title and Daniil Medvedev stopped Novak Djokovic’s perfect year in its tracks. 

And the smashing times will continue in Abu Dhabi as the Mubadala World Tennis Championship returns to the capital for 2021. 


Hosted at the International Tennis Centre in Zayed Sports City, the tournament will see six of the best male tennis players and two leading female players take to the court to thrill crowds over three days. 

Organised by Flash Entertainment, the competition will run from 16 to 18 December with tickets prices starting from AED 100 for adults and AED 50 kids. 


CEO of Flash Entertainment, John Lickrish, said the return of fans to the tournament was very special. 

He said: “Since its inception, the Mubadala World Tennis Championship has proven to be incredibly popular with people from Abu Dhabi and around the world, so to be able to announce its return, with fans in attendance, is a very special moment for us. 

“We challenge ourselves with each edition to provide an unmissable experience for all our audiences, from tennis fans and live event loyalists to families and international visitors. The 13th edition is shaping up to be one of the best to date, with the opportunity for everybody to reconnect, in person, in a safe environment.  

“We look forward to announcing another world-class line-up and welcome the world’s best tennis players back to Abu Dhabi.”
