The AEGON Classic Tennis Tournament starts in Birmingham today.

The event attracts some of the best female tennis players from around the world and is held at the Edgbaston Priory tennis club.

Last week, Daniela Hantuchova officially opened the new Indoor Tennis Courts at the club.

The indoor tennis centre, designed by Birmingham-based architects' Glenn Howells Architects, is part of a multi-million pound redevelopment of the Club's facilities.

The LTA has invested £5 million into the redevelopment as part of its commitment to grow and sustain the sport of tennis.
