Located in Halle, Germany, the Halle Open is an annual ATP 500 tennis tournament in June that takes place at the Owl Arena, previously known as the Gerry Weber Stadion. For 2022, the total prize money for the event is €2,134,520, which converts to $2,223,209.

The Halle Open started in 1993 and is a grass court event many players use to warm up for Wimbledon. For 2022 and 2023, the tournament’s official name is the Terra Wortmann Open. In previous years its name was the Noventi Open and the Gerry Webber Open due to title sponsors.

This year’s prize money is the tournament’s highest ever, with a 62% increase in player compensation over 2021 and a 2.5% jump from 2019. Due to the pandemic, tournament officials canceled the tournament in 2020, and organizers held it without fans in 2021.

For 2022, the winner in singles will pocket €399,170, while the runner-up will earn €214,775. These amounts equate to a 251% and 156% increase over the prior’s prizes, which are substantial because the tournament didn’t have fans supporting its revenue.

In doubles, the winning pair will take home €131,110 while the runner-up will earn €69,930, a 226% and 131% jump, respectively. Keep reading for a complete breakdown of the tournament’s singles and doubles prize money per round and historical data for comparison.
