Each category draw of 32, will include the top 22 players (basis their ITF ranking) who will get direct entry into the main draw and the remaining players will be drawn from the qualifying matches and wild cards.

Announcing the Championship open, Sundar Mahalingam, Chief Strategy Officer, HCL Corporation and Shiv Nadar Foundation said, "With a view to furthering HCL's core brand philosophy of touching people's lives, HCL has created various programs in the field of sports and music.
