EmblemHealth Bronx Open Set to Return to Crotona Park
The 2012 EmblemHealth Bronx Open (EBO) kicks off on August 5 with a week of fun-filled activities that bring together professional women tennis players, police officers, firefighters and kids of all ages.
Among other things, the event — the only women’s professional tennis tournament played in New York City (NYC) just prior to the US Open - features:
- The FDNY vs. NYPD Tennis Championship. This highly popular lead-up to the EBO takes place on Saturday, August 4. EmblemHealth will make a contribution to NYPD and FDNY education scholarship funds and award a trophy to the winning team.
- Women’s Singles and Doubles Tournaments. Players from around the world will compete for $50,000 in prize money.
- The L1 EmblemHealth Junior Tennis Championships. This United States Tennis Association-sponsored event showcases up to 100 boys and girls, the majority of whom are enrolled in free supervised tennis programs provided by the New York Junior Tennis & Learning (NYJTL).
General admission is free Sunday, August 5 through Saturday, August 11. General admission for the Women’s Final on Sunday, August 12 is $10, and box seats are $25. Admission is free daily for all children 12 and under.
