WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — (July 1, 2022): The Greenbrier Champions Tennis Classic will celebrate its 10th
anniversary by once again playing host to a number of the biggest names in tennis this fall. Genie Bouchard, Jack Sock, Leylah Fernandez and Sam Querrey make up the four-player field, which will take to the court at Center Court at Creekside Stadium
on September 24.
A women’s singles match, men’s singles match and a mixed doubles match make up the action at this unique, intimate event, hosted by Champions Series Tennis
“We started this event in 2012, hoping to bring tennis back as a showcase sport at The Greenbrier,
and we’ve had some of the top players to ever play the sport play on our courts,” said Dr. Jill Justice, President, The Greenbrier. “It’s extremely exciting to know we’ve kept this event going for a decade and continue to bring an entertaining product to tennis enthusiasts from around the area.”
