Fan Guide to the Memphis Open Tennis Tournament

Memphis has major hoop love. But Feb. 11-19, 2017, you’ll see another competitive edge of the Bluff City: the Memphis Open men’s professional tennis tournament, hosted by The Racquet Club of Memphis. One of the longest-running tournaments on the ATP World Tour, the Open is celebrating its 41st year. Here’s how you can get in on the action: 

Purchase daily session or series tickets here to see a playing field that includes John Isner, the top-ranked American man for the 5th straight season, and Donald Young, who reached the singles quarterfinals at last years' open and the semifinals in 2015. Better hurry because box seats are already sold out!

On Feb. 13-15 you can enter the 8th Annual Memphis Open Ping Pong Tournament presented by Lexus of Memphis. Get driving directions to the Memphis Racquet Club here.  

Explore East Memphis. The Racquet Club is located in East Memphis, a residential area of the city marked by shady trees, gardens you can visit, and upscale restaurants. With kids, visit My Big Backyard at Memphis Botanic Garden (let them slide, build outdoor forts and duck into the attraction’s playhouses). With or without kids, see what’s blooming, plus art exhibits, at the Dixon Gallery & Gardens. For a taste of East Memphis, go for a hearty Southern breakfast at Blue Plate Café; lunch at craft butcher/deli Porcellino’s; and Asian-meets-Southern fare—plus artisan cocktails—at ACRE (with the kids, opt for wood oven-fired pizza at Hog + Hominy). For dessert, Muddy’s Bake Shop is a must, with simply decorated, simply delicious cupcakes, pies, dessert bars, and more that even The New York Times raves about.
