20 July 2012 / First Philadelphia GLTA tennis tournament!

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is a city of many firsts in the nation; first daily newspaper, first stock exchange and the first bank were all founded here! It was only a matter of time until it also held its’ first GLTA tournament.

Philadelphia Liberty Tennis Association will host the first ever Philadelphia Open July 20 through July 22, 2012. It will be hosted at the Arthur Ashe Youth Tennis & Education Center – a USTA national tennis facility winner. Many East Coast players will recognize the facility as the same one that hosted the 2011 Atlantic Cup. This is a truly amazing indoor/outdoor facility so there are no worries about weather! And if you’re not lucky enough to make it to the later rounds, Philadelphia’s Gayborhood is one of the most happening gay areas in the country! They boast a three to four square block area of over twenty gay bars and restaurants to celebrate with your friends! The city’s tourism board recently launched a campaign geared towards the LGBT community; “Get Your History Straight and Your Nightlife Gay! 

Philadelphia Liberty Tennis looks forward to hosting athletes from around the world to celebrate togetherness and sports! Registration for the event is now open HERE and we are limiting entries for the first year; so we encourage interested players to register early!
