Leading tennis players from around the world will compete for $50,000 in prize money at the Kirkland Classic, a USTA Pro Circuit event, Oct. 4-11 at the Central Park Tennis Club in Kirkland.

The event will draw USTA Women’s Pro Circuit players from both the U.S. and internationally as they position themselves for the upcoming Australian Open. Many players are recent participants in the U.S. Open, including a number of 100 WTA players. The event is currently sold out.
