The City of Palm Coast is thrilled to invite residents and visitors to the highly anticipated Palm Coast Open, a United States Tennis Association (USTA) Pro Circuit Event, now in its 13th year. This premier event showcases tennis talent from across the globe, all competing for $15,000 in prize money and crucial ranking points with the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP).

In addition to witnessing world-class tennis action, amateur tennis players are invited to participate in the excitement by registering for the Wild Card Qualifiers Tournament. This is a unique opportunity for amateur players to showcase their skills and compete alongside professional athletes. Amateur athletes can register for both single and double play on Friday, February 9, through Sunday, February 11, by clicking here.

Adding to the excitement, this year, Palm Coast has been chosen as the site for a shadow test by Foxtenn, an industry leader in tennis officiating technology. Their cutting-edge system, IN & OUT, aims to revolutionize the sport by providing live electronic line calling for the ATP, Womens Tennis Association (WTA), and Grand Slam events.

Unlike traditional systems that rely on bounce estimations, Foxtenn utilizes state-of-the-art sensors and devices to capture real-time images of the ball bounce with unprecedented accuracy. With over 40 ultra-high-speed cameras capable of generating more than 100,000 images per second, Foxtenn ensures precision and reliability in line calls, revolutionizing the game.

“We’re honored to host Foxtenn’s shadow test at the Palm Coast USTA Open,” said City of Palm Coast Parks and Recreation Director James Hirst. “This partnership showcases Palm Coast’s commitment to innovation and excellence in sports. We hope everyone will come out to support these athletes when the Palm Coast USTA Open kicks off on February 9th at the Palm Coast Tennis Center.”

The Palm Coast Open starts on Friday, February 9 through 10, with Wildcard qualifying matches, with finalists for the wildcard matches being selected on Sunday, February 11. Qualifying matches will run Monday through Friday, February 12 to 16, with semi-final and doubles final matches on Saturday, February 17.
