National Premier League Tennis

This Spring Hothouse Productions produced the National Premier League Tennis Finals for Channel 4. The NPL is the biggest sporting event to hit North East England this spring. This is the first time the event has been televised and the one hour programme can be seen on Channel 4 at 7.30 am on 20th May 2007.

Managing Director, Nick Fellows commentated that Hothouse Productions is extremely excited to be able to take a different approach to the production. "The televising of the NPL tournament will see a move away from the more traditional tennis programme formats. We wanted to give this programme the Channel 4 stamp…to make it fresh, cool and edgy, whilst still creating a credible show that appeals hard core tennis fans."
