JANUARY 21-29, 2017
THE ASICS WORLD TENNIS CLASSIC IS A SUPER CATEGORY II EVENT!
This year, and into the foreseeable future, we are proud and thrilled to have ASICS as our Title Sponsor. The iconic ASICS brand has made a splash in the tennis market with its new racquets, shoes and apparel. Be sure to visit the ASICS booth at the tournament.
We are also very proud to announce that the Mixed 50’s, Mixed 60’s AND Mixed 70’s events will be USTA Category I events which means that gold, silver and bronze balls will be awarded!!
The most visited page on the site is SCHEDULE OF PLAY where you will find approximate starting days for the different age groups. These dates are based on similar draw sizes to previous years and will most likely be the start dates. However, the tournament does reserve the right to change the date should draw sizes change significantly. The only events that will start on Saturday, January 21 are the Women’s 85 Singles, Mixed 60’s and Mixed 70’s.
We’ve also added another column that mentions the Maximum Draw Size for a particular event. This should also help with your planning. Sign up early to ensure a spot!
Many first, and some second, round matches are played at other clubs. Be sure to check the draw sheet and see where your matches will be played. The Venues section will give you a list of the locations as well as directions to them. Where To Stay will give you a number of lodging options to choose from. Things to Do will list the events and parties that will be going on during the week of the tournament. You’ll also find other popular attractions in the desert to visit including some of our favorite places to eat!
Finally, in the Photo Gallery, a slideshow of some photos taken at the 2016 tournament is available for viewing. Enjoy!
We hope you enjoy browsing through our site and please let us know if we’ve missed anything.
Thanks, and hope to see you in January!
