The Gainesville Tennis Classic, a USTA Pro Circuit Women’s $10,000 event, will host a pre-qualifying wildcard tournament the weekend of Feb. 21-22, 2015 at the Jonesville Tennis Center in Gainesville.

“This is a great way for juniors to get quality practice matches, as well as have an opportunity to earn a main draw or qualifying wildcard in singles, or a main draw doubles wildcard in the Gainesville Tennis Classic,” says Tournament Director Dave Porter.

The singles pre-qualifying winner will receive a main draw wildcard, while the second- and third place finishers will receive wildcards into the qualifying tournament the weekend prior to the Gainesville Tennis Classic.
