Details

The Winnipeg National Bank Challenger is a Men’s and Women’s tier two tennis tournament (players ranked 45 - 200 in the world) with $100,000 in prize money. We are the third largest tennis tournament in Canada. I brought this tournament to Winnipeg six years ago and wanted to have a marquee tennis event in Winnipeg for tennis fans and those new to tennis. The event has grown each year and last year Tennis Canada gifted us with both a men’s and women’s Challenger to double the size of the tournament.  We have approximately 92 entrants  from around the world. Last year we had 32 countries represented. This tournament is operated with the assistance of Tennis Canada, the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and the International Tennis Federation (ITF). Some of our past winners have gone on to be quarter-finalists for the French Open and Wimbledon, meaning that the next step up from our tournament are the “Grand Slam Tournaments”.  Our first women's champion has reached a world ranking of #8.’
