The Open took place in Birmingham from 3 to 7 January 2024. The 760 players from all over the world battled it out over 5 days of competition. 


20 French players were present, and as usual on the international stage, some of them shone. 


This was the case for three French players who finished in the top 5! 

Lauren Baltayan snatched bronze for the second time in her young career. 

Melvil Scianimanico had big ambitions for this tournament. Unfortunately, after a rather complicated semi-final match, he was unable to produce his game against Switzerland's David Bernet. He finished in 4ᵉ place. 

Amir Khaled-Jousselin in full progress, offers us more and more things, and it is completely felt on the court. He finished 5ᵉ and did better than last year when he came 9ᵉ.
