“It feels fantastic to host the Savannah Challenger again after our two year Covid hiatus,” shared Rhegan White-Clemm, Tournament Chair. “In its 12th year, the Savannah Challenger continues to be a popular tournament for ATP players on the rise.”

The Savannah ATP Challenger is one of the few professional sporting events hosted in the area, organizers note, with many young players participating who have gone on to be Top 20 in the world, including Nick Kyrgios and Kei Nishikori, who both took home the Savannah Challenger championship trophy.

To make up for lost time after pausing during the pandemic, the Savannah Challenger is bringing some new events to the tournament.
