Women's USTA Pro Tennis Tournament comes to Las Cruces

The newest addition to the United States Tennis Association Women’s Pro Circuit will be a stop in Las Cruces the first week of June.

This will be the first women’s USTA Pro Circuit event ever held in Las Cruces.

The newly-created $25,000 tournament for fledging World Tennis Association female pros trying to make their way to the upper echelons of the professional ranks, will be part of nearly 40 women’s pro circuit events held throughout the United States in 2013.

The tournament will take place at the NMSU Tennis Center, which reopened in 2008 with upgraded lighting to bring the 12 hard courts up to championship quality. Last year’s Western Athletic Conference men’s and women’s championships were held at the NMSU facility.

“Members of the USTA Southern New Mexico District have been trying for several years to bring men’s and women’s pro circuit tennis to town, so we are very pleased and excited about holding a USTA Pro Circuit Women’s tournament at NMSU this summer,” said Don Hemingway, president of the USTA-Southern New Mexico District. “The tournament will provide a tremendous opportunity for residents of Las Cruces and surrounding cities to view some excellent tennis in an up close setting.”

Entrants for the event will be announced closer to the tournament date. Typically, players outside the top 100 world rankings will make up a large part of the field. Several well-known professional players have launched their careers on the USTA Pro Circuit, including recent 2013 Australian Open semifinalist Sloane Stephens.

Plans are being made to add other events, including a pro-am event prior to the beginning of the official tournament on June 3 along with a possible tennis carnival for local youth.
Tournament organizers are currently working to identify volunteers and sponsors to support these first-time events.

Potential volunteers and sponsors can contact Don Hemingway at 575-382-7755 (don.hemingway@comcast.net), or Robert Czerniak, chairman of the tournament committee, at 575-649-4043 (rczernia@nmsu.edu).
