LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Lexington Challenger Tennis Tournament is headed back to Lexington July 26-August 1.

Tournament officials announced that due to COVID restrictions this will be a men's only singles and doubles event. They expect the women's draw to return in 2022 at the Hilary J. Boone Tennis Facility on the UK campus.

The event will be open to the public, but with specific restrictions in mind to help cope with the local COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. There will be no general admission tickets in 2021, but fans do have the opportunity to purchase week-long passes that will allow them seats to all matches throughout the tournament. Per the tournament’s agreement with the University of Kentucky, fan participation will be limited to sponsors, box seat holders and week-long passes.
