21 July 2012 / GLTA Columbus Classic tennis tournament

Home to Abercrombie and Victoria’s Secret Columbus Ohio has embraced another international brand. This year they host their very own GLTA tournament. Joining other recent recruits, Berlin, Dublin, Zaragoza, Bali and Cape Town, Columbus Metropolitan Tennis Organization (CMTO) is pleased to announce The “Columbus Classic” will be held July 21-23, 2012 at the indoor/outdoor courts of Wickertree Tennis Club.

Co-Director Mark Buckingham and John Cox, heard there was enough interest in hosting and participating in a GLTA event and have powered ahead. John explains “Columbus played host to the Gay Softball World Series, the Midwestern Invitational Classic (COMIC) bowling tournament and Labor of Love volleyball tournament . Each of these events attracts thousands of GLBT athletes and their supporters to Columbus. It is only natural that we now host a GLTA event.”

‘’We really listened to players. Consolation matches are scheduled for single and doubles. Making this a great value for money event is a top priority’’

Discover for yourself why Gay Travel named the city as their “Most Underrated Gay City” of 2011. Make certain to “like” their Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/ColumbusClassic) or visit their website (www.ColumbusClassicTennis.com) for complete event details, lodging, and surprises that will make this a unique stop on the 2012 GLTA circuit. Columbus has over 20 LGBT bars and nightclubs and is well known for their Short North business district, which is a mile-long strip in downtown Columbus that boasts several art galleries, LGBT-friendly stores, bars and restaurants

Columbus airport lies just 8 miles east of downtown and is served by most major airlines, with direct flights throughout the Midwest and Eastern Seaboard (as well Toronto, Canada), although relatively few direct flights to Western U.S. cities. Because of the low fares offered by discount carriers JetBlue, Midwest Express, and Southwest Airlines, fares to Columbus from other cities served by these airlines can be quite reasonable.
