A USTA Pro Circuit Event
March 18 – 26, 2017
Calabasas Tennis & Swim Center is proud to present the 2017 USTA Men’s Pro Tennis Championships of Calabasas, a men’s $25,000.00 USTA Futures tournament. As was the case last year, the tournament does not conflict with the BNP Paribas at Indian Wells. It is the week directly following. We hope our local and San Fernando Valley tennis fans will be ready for some local professional tennis after going to the desert for the BNP Paribas event.
This is the 17th year Top Seed Tennis Academy and the Calabasas Tennis & Swim Center has hosted USTA Pro tennis events. Calabasas is proud of the players who have competed at our Championships. Most recently, 3 out of the 5 players on the 2016 USA Men's Olympic Tennis Team have played in the Men's Pro Tennis Championships of Calabasas, Brian Baker, Steve Johnson, and Rajeev Ram. Now, Calabasas Pro Tennis can boast two new Olympic medal winners! Congratulations to Steve Johnson, who teamed with Jack Sock to win the Bronze medal in Men's Doubles, and Rajeev Ram, playing with Venus Williams, capturing the Silver medal in Mixed Doubles! An outstanding achievement for Calabasas Pro Tennis alumni. In addition, twenty 2016 Olympic tennis players from around the world have participated in Calabasas Pro Tennis tournaments! Add previous Olympic Gold medalists, Mike & Bob Bryan and Chile's Nicolas Massu to the growing list of Olympic medalists and you have one of the most decorated group of USTA Pro Circuit players ever assembled! Other past players include Grand Slam Champion Michael Chang, 2 time Grand Slam finalist Mark Philippoussis, current U.S. Davis Cup players, John Isner, Donald Young, and Sam Querrey and top twenty players, Kevin Anderson, Ivo Karlovic, & Viktor Troicki. We are looking forward to continuing that tradition in 2017.
