Welcome to the 2015 Ojai! This year’s tournament will be held April 22-26 and will be headquartered in downtown Ojai at Libbey Park. Started in 1896 by William Thacher, this year will mark the 115th playing of the oldest and largest amateur tournament taking place at the same location in the United States.
The Ojai features competitions in 30 different divisions and includes more than 1,500 junior, high school, collegiate and Open players playing on more than 110 courts at more than 30 sites throughout Ventura County, including private courts in Ojai. Among the highlights for the 2015 event:
- The Ojai is pleased to announce that this year’s tournament for the third straight year will feature the California Community Colleges State Championships.
- For the fourth straight year, the Pac-12 men will contest a team dual-match competition, featuring last year’s Pac-12 winner UCLA, and NCAA team champion USC.
- Through the generous donation of longtime tournament official and benefactor Mike Taggart, $22,500 will be handed out in prize money in the Men’s and Women’s Open events. Registration for the Open divisions begin on Friday, February 27th, and close on Friday, April 12th. Register here.
- Once again this year, junior events at The Ojai are considered a “Sectional Open” tournament by Tennis Recruiting Network (TRN), the premier collegiate tennis recruiting website in the country. Due to their historical strength, the Ojai Junior events now count for TRN ranking purposes, and players winning a match in these events will be considered as “national players” by TRN. The junior entries open on Monday, February 23, and close on Sunday, April 5. Register here.
