The Men’s ATP Challenger Tour in Charleston will be held Sept. 25 to Oct. 2.

Live to Play Mount Pleasant is proud to announce the first Men’s ATP Challenger Tour in Charleston happening Sept. 25 to Oct. 2 at their Mathis Ferry Road location. Rising stars in the Association of Tennis Professionals, along with seasoned professionals, will take to the courts for this week-long tournament. This is the first time a Men’s ATP Event will be held in the Lowcountry in many years.

Admission is complimentary with seating available for spectators to watch international, national and local players compete. With the blazing popularity of the WTA 500 Credit One Charleston Open, LTP organizers envision the men’s tour to catch on similarly and see this as an opportunity to expand the community’s love of tennis.

“At LTP, we’ve hosted many different WTA, ITF and national junior tournaments over the years. The community’s appreciation for professional tennis is amazing so we knew adding a men’s tour element to our resume for the Lowcountry would be vital. From top seeded Australian player Jordan Thompson to University of South Carolina alumnus and 2019 NCAA singles champion Paul Jubb the depth of talent is amazing. Add in young Americans Brandon Holt and Emilio Nava, both of whom had spectacular runs at the US Open this year, and this event will provide fans to have an impressive, front row view of players from around the world and perhaps the next US Open Champion,” said Patrick Hieber, Director of Tennis for the combined LTP facilities.

LTP Mount Pleasant is a haven for tennis enthusiasts of all ages and is located at 1513 Mathis Ferry Road. As a family-friendly sports complex, LTP offers nine clay courts, seven hard courts and two pickleball courts with full outdoor lighting. LTP Mount Pleasant is the home of a high-performance junior academy, Pate Academy, the LTP Pro Player Development Program with several WTA and ATP players training there full-time, the Synchronicity Wellness Center and also the Wahoo Aquatic Club.

In 2021 and 2022, LTP Mount Pleasant has been the host site for a Women's Tennis Association 125, two International Tennis Federation $100K’s, an ITF $60K, the International Tennis Association College Tennis Women’s All American Championships, the U.S. Tennis Association Girls 18s National Clay Court Championships, and six Universal Tennis Rating $25,000 events.
