Dear tennis friends,

 I am delighted to welcome you all to the "International Men's Tennis Championships of the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region for the MLP Cup". Especially since the MLP Cup had to be cancelled in 2021 and 2022, we are full of euphoria to welcome you to the tournament week at the Racket Center Nußloch. From 22 to 29 January 2023, we will have the opportunity to come together in the ambience of this US$ 25,000 ITF World Ranking Tournament.

The focus of the event is of course on the sport, which is why we are already looking forward to the future matches. We would also like to thank our supporters and sponsors, as it is only through their generous commitment that the tournament is made possible. We are very happy about the goodwill and tennis enthusiasm shown to us in the course of this. We are also grateful to the numerous media representatives who carry the message of the MLP Cup into the region. Our vision is to offer top-class sport and to ignite tennis enthusiasm. We feel very close to all of you and also to the organising team of student interns.

With this in mind, let's all celebrate a tennis festival together after a two-year break ...!


Dr. Matthias Zimmermann
