AL: What characteristics make Stowe a good place to host a tennis tournament?
AC: The community is ripe with athletic, active people that love sport. And it’s a bit different than the mainstream in that Vermont folks love their mountain biking, skiing, climbing, etc., and tennis falls in that category of an individual sport that you can play forever and actually improve as you age. The proof is in the hundreds of miles of single track found in Stowe, the best ski mountain in the East, and the 350-plus tennis courts in Stowe. That is about one tennis court for every 12 people! It’s a tennis town and deserving of a big tennis tournament each year.
