State Takeover of Tennis Tournament Approved
As expected, the Capitol Region Development Authority Thursday approved a plan to have the state purchase the rights to the New Haven Open Tennis Tournament.
The state became involved after it appeared the tournament would be moved to Winston-Salem , North Carolina. But officials there could not get the men’s tennis tour to agree to scheduling so both the men’s and women’s tournaments could be held there.
The tournament has been held in New Haven for 16 years, but in recent years has seen a decline in attendance.
