WTA and nice ITF events

What standards are generally demanded. I am currently on a wild crusade (with a national politician) to bring a better tennis event to Scotland than the current low ranking ITF events. What standards are generally demanded to host such events?

The fruit series is suspended whilst Grachka (obatafan) mourns Saori's retirement.

lol, the scottish international championships (edinbuergh 10k) has a bagpiper who leads the players on and off court on finals day!!

could probably hold a tier 4/5 at Edinburgh, cente court has around 300 seats, and players really love the facilities

at Sean Connery and George Galloway

It is actually Kenny McAskill of the SNP, as the Labour one didn't reply to my email

Maybe George can help after all....
