The St. Joseph's/Candler Savannah Challenger

The 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. 

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 2015 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 2016 Savannah Challenger with additional marketing options for our sponsors.
