USTA Serves and the PowerShares Series have teamed up in an effort to improve the quality of life among our nation’s youth and people with disabilities through the integration of tennis and education. Youth from local programs will be featured on center court at each tournament site and monies raised by USTA Serves at each PowerShares Series event will go back to local communities to fund tennis and education programs.
The 2012 PowerShares Series is a competitive tennis circuit featuring legendary tennis icons and world-renowned champions Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, John McEnroe, Jim Courier, Jimmy Connors, Michael Chang, Mats Wilander and Patrick Rafter. The 12-city tour of one-night tournaments is played in major U.S. arenas from October 13 – November 30. Each tournament features 4 Champions paired off in one set semi-finals and culminates with the winners meeting in an eight-game pro-set championship match. The Champions compete in pursuit of the #1 ranking on the PowerShares Series with $1 million dollars of bonus pool money on the line for the top three finishers on the circuit at the end of the season.
