Fashion and discounts highlight this summer’s Rogers Cup tennis championship

The players of the Sony Ericsson Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) Tour are coming to Toronto and they’re packing some style. From Aug. 11 to 19, the Rogers Cup Presented by American Express will showcase the top players and some of the hippest styles and most heart-pounding matches. The theme of this year’s event is Victorious & Vogue and it includes nine fashion shows over three days and an onsite tennis fashion exhibit.

Tennis legends John McEnroe, Anna Kournikova, Jim Courier and Carling Bassett-Seguso will also play a special exhibition match on Monday, opening night. The schedule will feature a one-on-one competitive match between McEnroe and Courier, two of the greatest tennis players of all time, as well as a mixed doubles match with all four participants. Players will be wearing microphones on court to provide fans with a unique tennis experience.

Members of the York community are invited to join the tennis excitement all week long at significant savings, including:

  • 30 per cent off prime Lower Bowl Silver seats;
  • 25 per cent off Lower Bowl Bronze seats;
  • 20 per cent off Level 300 seats.
