When Winnipeg Lawn Tennis Club hosts the National Bank Challenger (men’s and women’s professional tournament) in July, it will be the second largest combined Challenger tournament in Canada for 2016 following the Granby Challenger in Quebec. Players will compete for $100,000 in prize money – $75,000 on the men’s side and $25,000 on the women’s side.
“Tennis Canada along with the ATP and the ITF presented our group with an incredible opportunity, one that we could not pass on. Our city will see some of the world’s finest players showcasing their skills during the nine day event” said Mark Arndt, tournament founder and Executive Director of Tennis Manitoba.
Players ranked anywhere from 45 to 200 in the world are expected to make the stop in Winnipeg.
“Congratulations on bringing this tournament to Winnipeg,” said Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman. “Winnipeg is ready to show tennis fans we are a world class city, and we are looking forward to hosting you. This tournament will continue the momentum from hosting the Grey Cup last year, and will continue right through with hosting the Canada Summer Games in 2017”.
The tournament will feature many activities including a Pro-Am and a Kids’ Day.
