Feb 13, 2024
The ITF World Tennis Tour will be making a stop in Naples, Florida. From February 19th to February 25th, 2024, the Emilio Sanchez Academy is set to host the Germain BMW of Naples ITF World Tennis Tour where men's professional tennis players will battle it out at this $25,000 pro tournament.
As players gear up for the Miami Open in March, some will make a pit stop at the Emilio Sanchez Academy to showcase their skills and give back to the fans who support them.
Taking place right after the Delray Beach Open, this week-long event will also feature rising stars and seasoned pros facing off in the Sunshine State. Admission is free for all, so this is a must-see event for the Florida tennis community.

Among the pros slated to play the tournament at the Emilio Sanchez Academy are Liam Draxl from Canada, ranked #291, and Tristan McCormick, ranked #495. Tristan, who trains with Emilio himself, brings a wealth of experience as a former college player from Notre Dame, one of the nation's top collegiate tennis programs.
“We're thrilled to welcome the community of Naples to the Germain BMW of Naples ITF World Tennis Tour at the Emilio Sanchez Academy," said Emilio Sanchez, Founder and CEO of Emilio Sanchez Academy.
"This event is not just about tennis – it's about bringing people together, fostering a sense of unity, and celebrating the sport we all love and most importantly providing opportunities for younger players to make it to the top 100 in the world.”
