The WTA 125K series or WTA 125s[1] is an international series of professional women's tennis tournaments organized by the Women's Tennis Association starting in 2012. Sometimes called the WTA Challenger series[2][3] (in analogy of the men's ATP Challenger Series) it is the second highest level of women's competition, right below the top-tier WTA Tour, and just above the ITF Women's Circuit tournaments. Players who succeed in the WTA 125s earn sufficient ranking points to become eligible for the main draw or qualifying draw entry of WTA Tour tournaments. Titles at a 125K event are not counted as a victory on the WTA Tour.

Prize money

The tournaments offer total prize money of $125,000. Hospitality in these tournaments is included automatically.
