Dear visitors of the MLP Cup in our community,

I am delighted to welcome you to Nußloch during the week of 22-29 January 2023. The MLP Cup is an excellent reason to experience the hospitality of our community. For the 18th time, the Racket Center Nußloch offers the best conditions for tennis athletes to compete for ATP world ranking points. Tennis athletes from at least ten nations will compete. Thus, I can assure you that our sports community is home to a first-class international world ranking tournament.

25,000 US$ prize money and the award as the best tournament of the German Masters Series 2017 make the MLP Cup the tennis highlight of every winter season in our region. For this, Dr Manfred Lautenschläger and the team of the Racket Centre deserve our appreciation. I would also like to thank the sponsors for their great commitment and the regional media, who draw attention to Nußloch with their reporting. We appreciate this very much.

So I wish us all a successful tournament and a great week of tennis at the Racket Center Nußloch,


Joachim Förster (Mayor of Nußloch)
