Hosted at the new 4.5 million dollar “Tennis Gardens” stadium constructed at Longboat Key Club and Resort, Sarasota Open is the premiere Men’s USTA/ATP Professional Tournament on the west coast of Florida.
Jaensch Immigration Law Firm decided to become involved in the Sarasota Open because of its long ties to the local and national tennis community. The law firm is heavily involved in sports immigration and helps international athletes and coaches with obtaining temporary work visas and permanent residence in the U.S. To date, it has represented a number of top 20 male and female professional tennis athletes, many young athletes just starting their professional tennis careers, international collegiate tennis athletes who are looking to make the transition into positions within the tennis industry, amateur athletes seeking to train and compete in the U.S. full time, and internationally recognized tennis coaches, physical trainers and mental conditioning experts.
Now in its third year, top players from around the world will be coming to Sarasota to prepare their clay court skills for the 2010 French Open in Paris which immediately follows the Sarasota Open on the Men’s ATP Professional.
The intimate setting at the event gives spectators a front-row view to world-class tennis that is unique among major tournaments in the U.S. The close proximity to the on-court competition makes the Sarasota Open a tennis venue like no other.
This year the Sarasota Open will take place at the newly constructed Tennis Gardens at the Longboat Key Club in Longboat Key, Florida. The Tennis Gardens features a state-of-the-art stadium court with seating for 5,000 and lights for evening events.
The facilities include 20 state-of-the-art Hydro-Grid clay courts, a 7,200 square-foot clubhouse, locker rooms, a tennis pro shop, conference rooms and a wellness-themed restaurant. New additions for the 2010 Sarasota Open include shaded box seats, a new electronic scoreboard and large plasma tv’s with video and updated displays.
According to Tony Driscoll, CEO of Sarasota Open, “with new stadium design technology, the box seats are high off the ground giving spectacular views to watch the best players in the world perform.”
The Sarasota Open is also a successful fundraising event with charities benefiting the All Star Children’s Foundation, the Warren Foundation and Taking Back Lives. Hurricane Tennis will also be hosting a variety of events leading up to and during the Open to benefit these charities as well.
Additionally, Sarasota Open provides activities for all ages while the tournament is going on: a fashion show, Wii console gaming competitions and shopping for all with an on-site apple store available for all patrons to enjoy.
Media on Main (Mac and Cafe) will become the official box office center for the 2010 Sarasota beginning February, 1st, 2010. Tickets can be ordered locally at Media on Main or by purchasing online at www.sarasotaopen.org
