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 since 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 and losses at a WTA 125K event are separately counted from a player's WTA Tour results and corresponding head-to-head statistics.

Prize moneyEdit

The tournaments offer total prize money of $125,000–$162,480. An exception was made in case of 2020 Advantage Cars Prague Open which had a prize money of $3,125,000 which was funded by 2020 US Open organizers to make up for the lack of a qualifying draw as many low ranked players, mainly from Europe were unable to travel to New York due to COVID-19 pandemic. Hospitality in these tournaments is included automatically.
