The Pelham Racquet Club is one of the largest public clay court facilities in the state, with 20 clay courts and five hard courts. It has an impeccable reputation in the tennis community here at home and around the world. 

The Pelham Racquet Club hosts an annual USTA Pro Circuit women's tournament, which is sanctioned by the International Tennis Federation. Typically a $25,000 event, the ITF and USTA chose to elevate it to a $60,000 event in 2022. Because the purse is bigger, this tournament will attract higher-ranked players.

The USTA Pro Circuit tour serves as a pathway to the US Open and tour-level competition for aspiring tennis players and is a frequent battleground for established players who are looking to earn points and prize money.

"The Pelham Women's Event has been a staple of the USTA Pro Circuit family for almost 20 years and we have been incredibly fortunate to witness the growth of the event during that time," said Pro Circuit Senior Manager Idelle Pierre-Louis. "We are thrilled to see they are elevating to an ITF W60 and will be cheering them as they continue their tradition of world-class tennis combined with world-class hospitality in Pelham."
