Little Rock Open Returns to the Courts

It’s time to make some racket.

The Little Rock Open officially returns to the Rebsamen Tennis Center next month, kicking off eight days of action-packed tennis that benefits the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute Bone Marrow Transplant Program.

Held May 26 – June 2, the Little Rock Open brings up-and-coming professional players ranked globally to Little Rock, all competing for places in Grand Slam competitions. This year marks the second year for the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) to host the tournament, which had previously been hosted by Baptist Health, and admission to all matches for the week is free to the public.

One of the few professional sporting events in Arkansas (and the only pro tennis tournament in the region), this tournament is part of the Association of Tennis Professionals Challenger Tour and is a United States Tennis Association Men’s Pro Circuit event.

In years prior, the Rebsamen Tennis Center also hosted the Boys and Girls Club of Central Arkansas for a tennis enrichment session as well as a free tennis clinic for families in conjunction with the tournament. No word yet on if these events will return for 2024.
