The Fastest Week of the Summer 2017!

Krueger sprinting in 2016Enjoy a week at the park for the 24th Annual Levene Gouldin & Thompson Tennis Challenger! This 9 day USTA Pro Circuit event starts with the Qualifying rounds July 22nd. See the Binghamton stop of the ATP Challenger tour starting at 10am the first half of the tournament, and at 11am from Thursday through the Finals.

Matches run all day, with a feature match at 5:30pm that often features the top-seeded, best prospects of the ATP Challenger Tour. (The top player in the world, Andy Murray, won here in 2005!)

The courts of Recreation Park have hosted future Wimbledon champions, Davis Cup team members, and Olympic Gold Medalists. And invariably, the draw is filled with the hottest rising tennis stars of the year. (This year it’s Tennys Sandgren.)

The LGT Challenger is once again in the mix for the US Open Wild Card Challenge among American pro players. The USTA will award one men’s singles main draw wild card into the 2017 US Open to the player with the most ATP singles ranking points throughout five tournaments in five weeks this summer.
