2016 Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell to be held from 16 to 24 April

Next year’s Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell will be held from 16 to 24 April. In 2016, the qualifiers will be staged on 16 and 17 April followed by the main draw, which will kick off on Monday, 18 April, at the Real Club Tenis Barcelona.

As usual, the Catalan clay-court classic will be held following the first European Master 1000 event of the season in Monte Carlo.

Like in 2011, the ATP World Tour 500 event falls on 16 to 24 April. As the historic clay-court event will celebrate its 64th edition, it will be organized in the same week as the BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy in Bucharest, which is an ATP World Tour 250 event.

Widely considered as one of the best tournaments in its category, the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell is one of 13 ATP World Tour 500 events, of which eight are held on hard court, two on grass and three on clay (Barcelona, Rio de Janeiro and Hamburg).
