The weekend was a bittersweet one as this will be the last year the tournament will be held at the UofA Outdoor Courts located at Michener Park. The courts are set to be demolished at the end of August to make way for new courts which will be constructed and ready for play in the Spring of 2023.
The 110th Alberta Open is slated to take place at a date TBD in the summer of 2023. Please continue to check Tennis Alberta’s webpage for further details over the coming months.
