WTA 125K Series
In 2012, the WTA introduced the WTA 125K Series of tournaments to provide an opportunity for new markets to showcase a professional women's tennis product and offer lower-ranked and up-and-coming players additional opportunities to compete and earn prize money and ranking points.
With $115,000 in on-site prize money and 160 ranking points awarded the champion, WTA 125K Series events are a level above top-tier ITF Women's Circuit events ($100,000 prize money and 150 points for the champion).
There are five WTA 125K Series events scheduled for 2015: Nanchang, China (week of July 27); Dailan, China (week of September 7); Limoges, France (November week to be confirmed); Hua Hin, Thailand (week of November 9); and Carlsbad, California, USA (week of November 23).
