The longest running event on the USTA Pro Circuit is proudly hosted right here in Little Rock. St. Vincent Auxiliary has sponsored this men's professional tennis tournament since 1984. The 2014 tournament will run the week of April 7th with the finals on April 13th and will be played at Pleasant Valley Country Club.
Over the years, this tournament has launched the professional tennis careers of very well known icons in sport. The most notable being Andre Agassi. Others who have gone on to world class careers are the Jensen brothers, Brad Gilbert, Ken Flach, Robert Seguso, Jimmy Arias and Andy Roddick to name a few.
In 1992, the United States Southern Tennis Association voted this event the "Adult Tournament of the Year" and, in 2010, it was awarded "Special Tennis Event of the Year". The tournament has grown from a small event with only a few spectators to a major tennis event featuring top future professional players from around the world attended by hundreds of people and sponsorships that raise funds for health related causes.
The Wildcard Tournament begins April 1, 2014 and will be played at Rebsamen Tennis Center. The tournament features former college players and up and coming Arkansas juniors trying to earn a spot in next week's main draw. For more, click here.
