About the Tournament
USTA Pro Circuit
The USTA Pro Circuit was formed in 1979 to provide players with an opportunity to gain the professional ranking points they need to compete on the major pro tours. It has since grown into the largest developmental tennis circuit in the world, consisting of approximately 90 tournaments and offering nearly $3 million in prize money.
The women’s Pro Circuit consists of $15,000, $25,000, $60,000, $80,000 and $100,000 tournaments that range from entry-level events, giving young players the opportunity to earn their first ranking points, to premium-level tournaments, with competition close to that of the WTA.
Central Coast Pro Tennis Open
The inaugural Central Coast Pro Tennis Open will be held Sunday, September 24 through Sunday, October 1, 2017, at Templeton Tennis Ranch in Templeton, CA. This tournament is one of about 100 USTA Pro Circuit events that take place each year throughout the nation. These tournaments provide a pathway for aspiring tennis players and established professionals to compete in world’s largest tennis tournaments, including the Australian, French and U.S. Open and Wimbledon.

The Central Coast Pro Tennis Open is a $60,000 prize money event and will be the first professional tennis tournament ever to take place in San Luis Obispo County. The Tournament will attract more than 80-up-and coming tennis professionals from around the world, with world rankings of approximately #100 to #300. The Main Draw will feature 32 singles players and 16 doubles teams, with another 32 singles players entering in the qualifying rounds. A total of 74 matches will be played over eight days.
