New Haven Open at Yale near Hamden ApartmentsThe New Haven Open at Yale swings back into town this weekend and residents of nearby Hamden apartments have the opportunity to view the action firsthand. Going on Friday, August 16 through Saturday, August 24, the 2013 tournament promises to provide plenty of excitement both on and off the court.

Last year’s tournament featured five of the world’s top 10 players including 2011 Wimbledon Champion, Petra Kvitova, and the four-time New Haven Open champion, Caroline Wozniacki. Kvitova (8) and Wozniacki (10) return this year along with other top 10 players including Sara Errani (6) and Angelique Kerber (9).

Presented by First Niagra, the New Haven Open is much more than a tennis tournament and helps to generate $26 million in regional economic impact. In addition to the tennis matches, several events will be hosted throughout the week including:

  • Aetna Kids Day – Sunday, August 18 beginning at 10 a.m. children will have the opportunity to join WTA pros for a fun-filled day of tennis clinics, giveaways and autograph sessions. Tickets start at just $12 and the first 1,000 kids receive an Aetna goody bag.
  • Military and Heroes Appreciation Night – Budwiser is sponsoring a military and heroes appreciation night on Monday, August 19 for all active duty military and veterans. This deal includes one free ticket with every full price ticket purchased and they can participate in a tennis clinic in the Aetna FitZone. A special on-court ceremony will recognize these heroes that courageously fight for our country.
  • First Niagra Girl Scout Night – All Girl Scouts are invited to attend the New Haven Open on Tuesday, August 20 and enjoy a private Q&A session with a WTA pro. For more information, contact your troop leader.
  • Ooh La La Wine Bar – Throughout the week, attendees can take a break from the heat and the matches at the Ooh La La Wine Bar. Featuring California’s most stylish wines with the perfect touch of carbonation, the wine bar will provide the perfect place to relax.
