The 2020 Knoxville Challenger has been cancelled

Helen Ross McNabb Center is thrilled to host the Knoxville Challenger, a seven day professional tennis event, held in Knoxville, TN on November 9-15, 2020 at the Goodfriend Indoor Tennis Center.  The Challenger series is part of the USTA Pro Circuit series, which is designed to provide opportunities to aspiring young American professional tennis players to advance to the top levels of the game.

Players competing include pros beginning their careers, pros trying to improve their ATP rankings, and top-ranked junior players. By participating in events, like the Knoxville Challenger, players from the USTA Pro Circuit rise to a level of prominence in the major tour.

Many of the current top-ranked American players as well as many international stars have all competed in the Knoxville Challenger as they were climbing the world rankings. These pros will compete for a total purse of $50,000 in prize money and for valuable ATP ranking points.
