IMG Academy will debut a new USTA $10k Pro Circuit Futures men’s tennis event in November. It will be the final Futures event of the year, and the main draw will take place November 12-18. The event will conclude just before IMG hosts the Eddie Herr International Junior Tennis Championships, one of the junior tennis world’s largest and most prestigious international events.

“I am very excited that we can host and debut this Pro Circuit Futures event here at IMG Academy” said legendary tennis coach and founder of the IMG Academy Bollettieri tennis program, Nick Bollettieri. “The USTA Pro Circuit presents a major opportunity for amateurs and juniors to test their skills against pros, and gives our community a chance to experience professional tennis up-close.” 

The event will be played on clay courts and will feature 128 players participating in the qualifying rounds November 9-11. Thirty-two players will advance to main draw singles, with 16 teams advancing into the main draw doubles tournament.

“We are delighted to bring this event to IMG Academy – a campus out of which some of the game’s best players have emerged and continue to develop,” remarked Brian Early, USTA Pro Circuit Director. 

After 33 years of existence, the USTA Pro Circuit has become known as the largest developmental tennis tour in the world. The USTA Pro Circuit gives highly ranked amateur and junior tennis players an opportunity to test their skills against professionals; aspiring pros can earn rankings points; established pros can maintain their status or make comebacks; and fans in smaller markets receive exposure to pro tennis. Former greats who have played on the men’s USTA Pro Circuit include Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick, James Blake, Jim Courier, John Isner, Pete Sampras, Patrick Rafter, Lleyton Hewitt and Mats Wilander.
