This event type is only available on Venue accounts.
An Open Day event is different to an LTA Big Tennis Weekend event, if you would like to create an LTA BTW event please read this support guide here.
If you wish to create an Open Day event outside of the LTA Big Tennis Weekend event, then you can do so by following the steps within this guide. However, please note, that by creating an Open Day you will not be eligible for the LTA BTW Promotional Resource Pack.
Your Open Day event will be published on your website and also here: https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/Events/
