ANTIGUA TENNIS WEEK 5-12 MAY 2018
Among the many tennis events hosted by Curtain Bluff, Antigua, the best known is Antigua Tennis Week, held there each spring. Started in 1975 as an island-wide professional tournament, it has evolved over the last 35 years into an international pro-am tennis festival that attracts many of the biggest names in tennis. Their other big annual event is Tennis Challenge Week, held in November. Guests join former Davis Cup player, Dick Stockton, for a fun-filled week of tennis, relaxation and parties.
