Professional tennis set for Stowe return
STOWE — Professional tennis returns to Vermont for its second year as the Stowe Mountain Lodge Classic hosts some of the top men’s tennis players just a week before the US Open in New York. The eight-player exhibition event will be hosted at the Spruce Peak and Stowe Mountain Lodge, Aug. 19–22.
New for 2018, the Stowe Mountain Lodge Classic will intensify the competition by awarding $35,000 in prize money, and will also expand its draw from six to eight players, bringing fans more talent and more matches to enjoy.
“We were overwhelmed by the support for the tournament last year, both from the sponsors and the fans,” said Tournament Director, Kyle Ross. “We have an incredible venue here at Spruce Peak, a community that loves tennis and turns out for local events, and a team that is dedicated to putting on a world-class tennis event. Our goal last year was to lift this event off the ground; this year we’re looking to grow it into a sustainable part of summer here in Vermont and New England.”
Spruce Peak Stadium holds a capacity of nearly 2,000 and has three seating categories: VIP North Seating, Courtside and Grandstand. Single-session tickets, stay-and-watch travel packages, access to the VIP Player Party and other ticket options are on sale now at stowetennis.com, and by phone at (802) 549–4658.
Each ticket is valid for a full day’s worth of tennis, and the venue allows re-entry, so attendees will be free to explore the Adventure Center at Stowe or relax in the Spruce Peak Fan Zone between matches. The Stowe Mountain Lodge Classic is hosted at Spruce Peak and is managed by Grand Slam Tennis Tours.
