The 37th season of the professional women’s tennis event “Toray Pan Pacific Open 2022” will take place indoors on hard courts in September. It will be one of the WTA 500 events on the 2022 WTA Tour. From September 19 to September 25 it will take place at the Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo, Japan. It will be the first event since 2019 because the COVID-19 pandemic prevented it from taking place in 2020 and 2021.
The total value of the prizes is $757,900. A yearly event on the WTA 500 tour for women’s tennis is the Toray Pan Pacific Open. The Pan Pacific Open was established in 1984 after being first known as the Sillook Open in 1976. 32 single draws and 16 double draws were made this season.
Singles and doubles events on the hard courts are contested in three sets. In a knockout system, singles are played over five rounds and doubles over four. Despite being predominantly an outdoor event, the Ariake Colosseum show court was among the first tennis courts to have a retractable roof, allowing play to go on no matter the weather.
