For 12 and under players there will be Junior Home Nations events and Nationals (at Bolton and Corby) in the same weeks as the 14U events. There will also be a Tennis Europe Category 1 event in Bath the week commencing 31 October.
Finally, for 10U players there will be a National Tour event in the autumn in Sunderland and the 9U players will have National Tour events at either the National Tennis Centre or Loughborough University.
The Performance Competitions Calendar is designed to provide significantly enhanced opportunities for British players at each age and stage of the player pathway. Once the season concludes in December, we will have staged a total of 98 international events for age groups from 10U to pro-players on British soil (excluding traditional grass court season events) throughout 2022. This is a percentage increase in tournaments of 139% since 2019.
Zagreb is known as a summer gateway to the Adriatic coast and home to one of Europe’s most popular Christmas markets. But in recent years, the Croatian capital has added a flurry of new events to its calendar with the aim of becoming a vibrant destination year-round. We take a look, season by season, at some of the ones worth making a note of.
Spring: heading outdoors
In late March, as the clocks move forward and parks are abloom with daffodils, outdoor life in the Croatian capital reawakens. Fittingly, the Festival of Lightstakes place right around this time: a celebration of colour and radiance, this evening event illuminates the city’s facades, streets and landmarks in myriad hues. Raising the country’s sporting profile is the FIA World Rally Championship, which takes place over four days in April. It sees motor racing drivers negotiate narrow, twisty roads in the undulating surrounding the capital, through rural villages, woodland, vineyards and meadows. Early June, meanwhile, heralds the six-day AnimaFest Zagreb, the second-oldest in the world — a favourite among cartoon buffs since 1972. Watch animated movies at the Tuškanac Summer Stage, an open-air cinema in a glade surrounded by towering oak trees, or take part in exhibitions, competitions, workshops and lectures.

Federico Zuccaro Taddeo Rebuffed by Francesco Il Sant’Angelo, (about 1595). Image courtesy the J. Paul Getty Museum.
In this virtual talk on the occasion of “The Lost Murals of Renaissance Rome” (through September 4), Getty Museum curator Julian Brooks will explore one of the first illustrated “starving artist” narratives and its enduring relevance. Twenty drawings by Federico Zuccaro map out the setbacks, rejections, and eventual success of his older brother, Italian Renaissance painter Taddeo Zuccaro. Brooks will also explore how these images of artistic persistence have inspired 21st-century Los Angeles singer-songwriters.

2. “Blek Le Rat” at West Chelsea Contemporary, New York
French artist Blek Le Rat developed his unique blend of printmaking and graffiti in Paris the early 1980s after encountering street art in New York City and the work of Richard “Shadowman” Hambleton. His symbol was a small black rat: an anagram of the word “art” that he spread art throughout the city the way rats carry disease. Blek’s pop culture-infused stencil graffiti helped pioneer the art form and was highly influential: in Banksy’s first public interview, with the Daily Mail in 2008, the British artist lamented that “every time I think I’ve painted something slightly original, I find out that Blek Le Rat has done it too, only Blek did it 20 years earlier.”
Location: West Chelsea Contemporary, 231 10th Avenue, New York Price: Free Time: Monday–Wednesday and Saturday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m.–8 p.m.; Sunday, 12 p.m.–6 p.m.

Adama Delphine Fawundu, a 2022 artist-in-residence at Project for Empty Space, presents an exhibition featuring a 360-video projection and mixed-media hanging sculptures made from hand-dyed fabrics. Fawundu conceived of the exhibition, which is inspired by the African diaspora experience, as a spiritual conversation with her namesake, her late grandmother who she called Mama Adama. “Although our physical bodies have only shared space on this earth for 23 years, our spirits have always been intertwined,” Fawundu wrote in her artist’s statement.
Luchita Hurtado, who died in 2020 at age 99, only began to received recognition for her decades-long career in the final years of her life. But while you may have seen her paintings, Hurtado’s works on paper, including charcoal, crayon, graphite, and ink drawings, have kept a low profile. Hauser and Wirth presents intimate self-portraits, plus other pieces never exhibited in her lifetime.
