Kingsmill Hosts USTA Pro Circuit Tennis Tournament October 2nd–9th 2011

The Kingsmill Tennis Club in Williamsburg VA will once again be the host site for the 2011 Women’s USTA Pro Circuit Tennis Tournament  This year’s event will be the third year we have held a women’s professional tennis tournament at Kingsmill. Based on  past years experiences, you can expect another week of great tennis from up-and-coming female players from all over the world.

The United States Tennis Association runs the Women’s Pro Circuit, holding tournaments throughout the country. Players earn ranking points based on their performance in these tournaments. These points are used to determine the world rankings. This event is designed for new pros looking to move up the professional ranks, for highly ranked junior and college players and for players who once had high world rankings looking to move back to the top. The prize money level is $10,000 to $25,000. The tournament is outstanding and includes players from the US, Canada, Russia, Germany, Bulgaria, China, Brazil and more. Players such as Maria Sharapova and Lindsay Davenport once played on the Pro Circuit while working their way up to the Grand Slam events. The 2010 winner at Kingsmill, American Lauren Davis, won the qualifying tournament at the 2011 Australian Open before losing to Maria Sharapova in the first round of the main draw. Lauren’s success demonstrates the high level of play that comes out of the starter tournaments.
