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.
