2017 COLEMAN VISION
September 13, 2017
Women's professional tennis will return for the 20th consecutive year to Albuquerque, N.M. for one of the longest-running Pro Circuit stops on the USTA Pro Circuit, the 2017 Coleman Vision Tennis Championships, held Sept. 18-24.
The Coleman Vision Tennis Championships (CVTC) is the longest-running professional sports event held annually in the state of New Mexico and one of the few opportunities for fans of tennis in the Southwest to see professional tennis!
The CVTC returns to Albuquerque's gorgeous Tanoan Country Club. This year's CVTC, like usual, will include several players ranked inside and around the Top 200 on the WTA Tour.
The tournament provides an excellent opportunity for tennis fans and spectators to catch talented young up-and-comers, and see them in an up close and personal setting. This year's tournament will feature an $80,000 purse (bumped up from $75K the last few years) and will be live streamed on the USTA website HERE.ADVERTISEMENT
Defending champions at the CVTC is Mandy Minella (singles) and Michaella Krajicek/Maria Sanchez (Doubles).
This year's tournament ENTRY LIST is still in the works. Check back to see which players will commit to this event.
The 2017 Tournament Daily SCHEDULE OF EVENTS.
The CVTC is a fixture in the Albuquerque community with several community-themed events taking place all week long, including the annual School Day for kids and several other charitable aspects of the tournament.
The last 10 years of the event, proceeds from the USTA Pro Circuit Event CVTC have benefitted the New Mexico Youth Tennis Foundation and major inroads in community tennis have been made as a result. The CVTC has helped expose the sport to more than 10,000 Albuquerque-area youth to the opportunities available through tennis and helped provide after-school tennis programs for an additional 10,000 more!
The NEW MEXICO YOUTH TENNIS FOUNDATION is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization formed in 2007 by Coleman Vision Tournament Director and former USTA Southwest president Sue Jollensten, whose mission is to promote youth tennis and support programs providing education and opportunity to all New Mexico Youth through tennis.
The tournament is named after Dr. Stephen Coleman, a world-renowned laser eye surgeon who is based in Albuquerque, and who is a passionate tennis player and lover of the sport. Come out and support the CVTC this fall!
