■ Background of the tournament
“JAPANGP2022” is a national soft tennis tournament with a prize of 1.5 million yen, the highest in Japan. This tournament is the first paid spectator match, and anyone can participate without age restrictions. In addition to the Emperor’s Cup winning pair, the runner-up pair, the West Japan championship winning pair, and the East Japan championship winning pair, a total of 8 pairs that have won the qualifying tournaments of four blocks will compete. In addition, the finals will be held in 5 games x 3 set matches under the theme of “do, see, support”. *9 games until finals
In recent years, new professional players have been born in the soft tennis industry. Along with that, various competitions are held all over the country. In the future, soft tennis competitions will become “admirable occupations” for children, just like other professional sports, so we set up a tournament prize money and created a tournament that anyone can participate in.

Recently, the number of professional players who devote their lives to soft tennis has increased. We would like to support efforts to increase social recognition of soft tennis players and competitions. This project will be held for the second time following 2020. This year, the tournament will be held with an audience. This project offers a wide range of returns that can be enjoyed by everyone from children to adults, from pre-sales of watching tickets to autographed balls of the winning players and tournament sponsors. Thank you very much for your support.

“JAPANGP2020” was held with a strong desire to spark a fire in the soft tennis world as the organizer. It was held under different rules than before, but I think it turned out to be a very interesting tournament for the players as well. This year’s tournament will be even more updated. We would like to update and hold the event every year for the development of soft tennis. We will continue to strive to make soft tennis a dream sport.
We are active as a management company specializing in Japan’s first professional soft tennis team and soft tennis players. We are a management company that conducts branding and marketing to maximize the value of athletes through creating an environment where soft tennis players can concentrate on the competition, negotiating appearances on TV, events and lectures, and managing SNS.
