ATP Challenger to return to Happy Valley from December 31, 2016 to January 8, 2017

The Happy Valley Tennis Club is delighted to be hosting a $US75,000 ATP Challenger Event in January 2016/17. The City of Onkaparinga, Tennis Australia and Tennis SA are working closely with the Organising Committee from the Happy Valley Tennis Club to bring this world class event to your doorstep.

The City Of Onkaparinga ATP Men’s Challenger Event is a professional men’s tennis tournament on the Australia/Asia Tennis Tour Calendar and part of the Australian Pro Tour series. It is one of only six ATP Challenger events to be held in Australia this season. Positioned as a lead-in event to the Australian Open Grand Slam, it will be played in the same week as the Brisbane International during Australia’s Summer of Tennis in January. Amongst the very strong field we anticipate there will be players from the top 100 in the world entered. The 2015 event had five players from the top 100 in the world enter.  This included Marcos Baghdatis , Ryan Harrison and  Paul Henri-Mathieu. The 2016 event saw the Number 1 Junior in the World finish Runner Up to Dudi Sela.  Both went on to participate in the Australian Open main draw.  This is a fantastic opportunity to see world class tennis up close!
