SAVANNAH, GA – March 30, 2022 – The Savannah Challenger, a premiere professional ATP USTA tennis event presented by St. Joseph’s/Candler and hosted by the Landings Club at the Franklin Creek Tennis Center on Skidaway Island, will be returning for its 12th annual year, April 25 – May 1, 2022, after a two-year break because of the pandemic. The Savannah Challenger is presenting new events and entertainment that will be going on throughout the tournament, including a silent auction to raise funds for a local nonprofit organization and a Center Court concert on Thursday, April 28.
For the first time, the Savannah Challenger has partnered with the nonprofit organization, Savannah Area Tennis Association (SATA), that creates and supports initiatives for underserved communities with their tennis programs for children in Chatham County. As a subset of the United States Tennis Association (USTA), SATA organizes leagues, outreach programs and casual tennis events. SATA’s Community Outreach Programs include Special Pops, Wheelchair Tennis, tennis programs with the Frank Callen Boys & Girls Club and much more. The Savannah Challenger will be hosting a silent auction throughout the tournament to benefit SATA’s educational programs. The auction will feature a selection of quality tennis themed items and will be available for in-person bidding on April 25.
A new Center Court Concert will be happening on Thursday, April 28th at 8 p.m. with favorite and well-known Savannah group, “Tell Scarlet”, playing a wide range of hits from 60’s classics all the way through to today’s favorites. Tickets for the full day of USTA tennis and the evening concert are just $35.00 and can be purchased now at www.savannahchallenger.com.
“We are so excited to be giving back to the community by partnering with SATA! We hope everyone will come on over to our Savannah Challenger week, especially on the Thursday for a great day of men’s professional tennis and some sensational Savannah music,” said Savannah Challenger Tournament Chairman Rhegan White-Clemm. “We want to welcome all tennis fans from around the Low Country to this fantastic USTA tournament which we are enhancing with new hospitality areas, live music, sponsor gift giveaways, and a wonderful silent auction.”
