Vanderbilt University will serve as the host for the $50,000 Music City Challenger men's tennis tournament, the first of its kind to be held in the Music City.

The tournament will be held at the Brownlee O. Curry Jr. Tennis Center on the Vanderbilt University campus November 8-13, 2004. The tournament will feature a 32-player main draw singles tournament and a 16-team main draw doubles tournament.

A part of the USTA Pro Circuit, Challenger Tour Events are open to players ranked between 60-250, competing for ATP and WTA world ranking points. Fifty such events are played nationwide year round, 25 men's events and 25 women's events.

"A tournament like this not only brings world class tennis to Nashville, it also gives Vanderbilt a chance to showcase its talent on the highest level," Vanderbilt men's tennis coach and tournament director Ken Flach said.

Nashville native Brian Baker, currently ranked #168 in the world, is on the tournament's watch list. Former Vanderbilt player Chad Harris, as well as current team members Scott Brown and Matt Lockin will be seen in the action.

General admission tickets will be on sale this week at the Currey Tennis Center. General admission tickets are $5 Monday through Wednesday, and $10 Thursday through Saturday. Visit www.musiccitychallenger.com for more information.
