We would like to thank Chrysler International and Caribbean Autogroup, but especially Mr. Bill Lambert for providing St. Thomas with the opportunity to start and grow the tournament into what it has become today. The first tournament was held in 2007 and by 2011, this USTA sanctioned event had over 100 tennis players entering from the USVI, Caribbean, US Mainland and Europe, including 8 ATP ranked players competing in 8 different events. Helga, Elsbeth and the rest of the tournament committee look forward to working with Choice Wireless and the VI Department of Tourism this year as well as many future Choice Wireless VI Open Tennis Tournaments for both our local and off island tennis friends to enjoy.
All B event’s are open to players with a USTA ranking of 4.5 or lower or international equivalent. When in doubt, please enquire via email.
The deadline for entering is Friday January 25th at 5pm. Entry forms will be available at this site and the USTA tennislink website by December 2012.
