The Qualifying Competition comprises Gentlemen’s and Ladies’ Singles competitions where players must win through three rounds to earn one of the 16 Championships’ Main Draw places for men or 12 Main Draw places for women.
There are also qualifying draws for Gentlemen’s and Ladies’ Doubles with four places available in the Main Draw of each event. All players receive ranking points and prize money, both of which increase with every match they win.
If a Main Draw player withdraws after the Qualifying Competition has started, his/her place in the Main Draw will be taken by a lucky loser – this is a player that lost in the final round of qualifying. These players are drawn by lot against other losers in this round.
