Savitaipale OPEN - a long tradition

International competition

The Finnish Tennis Association first started organizing multinational events in 2002. In order for the FTA to be able to host international tournaments in the first place, a tournament by Tennis Club Savitaipale was also needed. Savitaipale hosted men’s tournaments for the first four years, after which the Ladies Open was established. For the men’s calendar, the tournament would have to take place in early June, which is too early. The courts are in better condition in early August, just in time for the Ladies Open.
The tournament has been a huge success every year. The International Tennis Federation has been pleased with the arrangements and court conditions, and international umpires have enjoyed the beautiful nature and pleasant atmosphere in Savitaipale. Players have found the tournament to be a refreshing exception among impersonal big city venues, and have appreciated the community spirit of the event. Many athletes have made their way from Savitaipale to the top of the tennis world.
The tournament is put together by a volunteer group of 30 people, who take care of the courts, cafeteria, transportation and medical aid.
