Potential Sponsor Information

The Landings Club will host the 2017 USTA St. Joseph’s/Candler Savannah Challenger April 29- May 7, 2017

 

The 2017 St. Joseph’s/Candler Savannah Challenger is the premiere professional tennis event in south Georgia, attracting some of the top names on the ATP Tour. The success of many of our 2014 players at Wimbledon and in the US Open was absolutely amazing. Our 2014 champion Nick Kyrgios went on to upset Gasquet and then Nadal to advance to the quarterfinals of Wimbledon. Our singles finalist Jack Sock went on to claim the men’s doubles championships, and one of our wildcards, Noah Rubin went on to win the boys singles championships at Wimbledon. Kei Nishikori, our 2010 champion, was the US Open finalist in 2014.

The St. Joseph’s/Candler Savannah Challenger was such a successful event that Tennis Magazine did a feature on the players of the Challenger series.

In 2017, it will be the ninth year the St. Joseph’s/Candler Savannah Challenger is hosted at Savannah’s beautiful island community The Landings Club. Our event continues to grow in popularity; our night matches were a big hit and Kids Day and Ladies Day are always extremely well-attended. We continue to upgrade our VIP section, and feedback from 2016 was extremely positive. The atmosphere for the 2017 will again be electric with lights, live music, live streaming and much more. The 2017 event will be held in late April and is a must-attend if you are within a few hours of Savannah, Georgia. Over the years the St. Joseph’s/Candler Savannah Challenger has had some thrilling events with players such as Mardy Fish, Ryan Harrison (2013 Champion), Michael Russell, Jack Sock, Ivo Karlovic, Nicolas Massu (2 time Gold Medalist), Donald Young, John Isner, James Blake, Kei Nishikori (2010 Champion), Robbie Ginepri and many more. The St. Joseph’s/Candler Savannah Challenger is always a player favorite as many have been amazed at the facilities and the southern hospitality.

The St. Joseph’s/Candler Savannah Challenger and the USTA Pro Circuit are designed to bring some of the world’s finest tennis players to our city. Challenger tournaments are usually held for ATP players with a world ranking between 40-200, but the Savannah Challenger tournament can bring players ranked in the top 20 in the world. The USTA Challenger series allows more American players to stay here at home and improve their rankings on the ATP tour. If they are successful in building their rankings, they have the opportunity to enter directly into the main draw to higher-level tournaments including the Grand Slams. Points earned during the St. Joseph’s/Candler Savannah Challenger count towards the USTA Wildcard entry into the 2017 French Open held in Paris, France in May.

With local, national and international exposure, our city and our sponsors were able to tell their stories of what makes Savannah a great place to live, work and play. The tournament provides sponsors and advertisers the opportunity to reach large audiences, have several weeks of exposure locally and nationally and appeal to diverse demographic groups. Media coverage includes print, radio, TV and the web. In 2014 the Savannah Challenger website had more than  35,000 visits and, for the first time ever, the entire week of play was streamed live around the world. This feature will again be part of the 2017 St. Joseph’s/Candler Savannah Challenger with additional marketing options for our sponsors.
