MEN'S TENNIS OFF AUTO PILOT: CT TOURNAMENT SOLD AND MOVED?
Published October 8, 1998
The Pilot Pen Int'l men's tennis tournament has been sold to a Kitzbuhel, Austria, investment group, according to Greg Garber of the HARTFORD COURANT. While the official announcement is set for today, "several Tennis Foundation of Connecticut employees confirmed that the event will not be played next August on the campus of Yale University." The women's Pilot Pen, "a modest success in its first year this past August, is secure for the near future at least." The "death of the tournament was blamed on the bottom line," as tournament execs claim the men's event "lost nearly" $2M in two years. The Kitzbuhel group, "which currently sponsors a World Series-caliber event, presumably will upgrade" to a Championship Series status (HARTFORD COURANT, 10/8).
