One of the event’s activity highlights, the Prudential Charity Tennis Challenge was supported by guests of honour from the local sports scene, entertainment world, business and commerce fields. Although the activity was cancelled due to the adverse weather under Typhoon Koinu, Prudential Hong Kong Limited sponsored HKD $200,000 for the HKTA Foundation to support the development of wheelchair tennis in Hong Kong.

China’s Tang Qianhui and Chinese Taipei’s Chia Yi Tsao defeated No.3 seeds Oksana Kalashnikova and Aliaksandra Sasnovich to claim the PHKTO 2023 doubles title, their first as a team.

The qualifying and first day of main draw of PHKTO 2023 were affected by inclement weather as a result of Typhoon Koinu, but proceeded smoothly after play resumed on Tuesday, 10th October.

The PHKTO Tournament Village offered a sports, arts & entertainment experience to all with free entry to the public from 10 - 15 October.
