“We’re expecting several other schools to send players and already are planning for 2019 as the reputation of the tournament grows,” said tournament director Cody Hallowell. For the second year the Al Hurvis/ADAMM Education Foundation is sponsoring the tournament. ADAMM is the auto dealers trade and training association in the six counties of Southeastern Wisconsin.
In June, the Hurvis/ADAMM Foundation brought former world #4 James Blake to Milwaukee for an exhibition match and appearances to promote “education, community resources and the game of tennis.”
There is no admission charge for matches at the Town Club and Western Racquet Club.
Championship tickets will be available in advance at no charge from auto dealerships and tennis clubs and will be sold at the McGuire Center. Substantial discounts will be available for families, according to Hallowell.
