The Slazenger Nottingham Open (previously known as Red Letter Days Open, Samsung Open and 10tele.com Open) was a tennis tournament on the ATP Tour that was held in Nottingham, Great Britain. Originally a replacement of the Manchester Open, it was discontinued after the 2008 edition, and the International Women's Open at Eastbourne became a combined event for both male and female players. The tournament was played on outdoor grass courts, and the final event was held from June 14 till June 21.
Nottingham City Council bosses announced their "extreme disappointment" at having Nottingham Open removed from the ATP Tour. The event had, according to the council, been partly responsible for stimulating interest in tennis in Nottingham. Roger Draper, the head of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) responded by saying that the changes would introduce tennis to a "new audience". It was announced later in 2008 that Nottingham would host a new tennis event, the Aegon Nottingham Challenge, in lieu of The Surbiton Trophy, which was cancelled, in 2009. The new event will be an ATP Challenger Series event, which is one level lower than the main ATP Tour. The Nottingham Tennis Centre, which had hosted the Open, had undergone refurbishments costing £735,000 in 2008, and councillor Dave Trimble called it "great news" to have a new tennis event in the city.
The tournament will return in 2015 as a ATP World Tour 250 series event.
