The Savannah Challenger is excited to announce that they will be in Ellis Square Saturday, March 29 from 1-5pm. Come out and view some exciting new items that will be part of the professional tennis tournament this April.

The USTA will also be there with information to help get you involved in local tennis programs and events. Kids, families, adults and seniors are welcome to stop by and meet with the tournament staff and enjoy a day in the square.
The 2014 USTA Men’s Pro Circuit tennis event, held at The Landings Club, will feature night matches for the first time. Matches will begin in the evenings at 6:30pm, Monday through Friday, April 21-25. Each evening will start with a doubles match immediately followed by a singles match. “We have done our research and have now provided our members, as well as the Savannah Challenger, with the best lighted tennis courts in the southeast.” Scott Mitchell explained. “This year’s tournament will really have a completely different atmosphere from past years. We will have the lights and also have music playing between matches and during match changeovers, Ladies Day (Wednesday, April 23) and Kids Day (Saturday, April 26). It will be an event that many in our area will want to come out and enjoy”.
Live action from the Savannah Challenger will also be live streamed on its website at www.SavannahChallenger.com.
