From the Tournament Directors:
Welcome to Vancouver, VIP Players!
On behalf of the Vancouver Tennis Association (VTA) and as Co-Tournament Directors, we extend a warm welcome to all of you to the 2023 Vancouver International Pride (VIP) Tennis Tournament!
The VIP Tournament, hosted by the VTA, is the premier Canadian West Coast 2SLGBTQ+ tennis event, bringing together over 100 recreational, social, and competitive players from Vancouver, North America, and around the world. Celebrating its 23rd anniversary as part of the GLTA World Tour series, this tournament is a culmination of over 80 different sanctioned events from our 70+ tennis clubs worldwide, open to our 10,000+ strong membership.
These events, mirroring the real-life professional tennis tour, draw enthusiastic crowds and sponsors who support an open, safe, and inclusive space committed to promoting and developing amateur tennis in the 2SLGBTQ+ community.
We are excited to have you all here to participate in this year’s VIP Tournament, bringing together tennis players from diverse backgrounds and creating an atmosphere of camaraderie and celebration. Let’s make this event unforgettable!
Wishing you all the best on the court and a fantastic experience in our vibrant city.
See you on the courts!
