Returning to Captiva this November will be the South Seas Island Resort Women's Pro Classic $50,000 USTA Pro Circuit Event.

The event runs Nov. 2-9.

After a successful inaugural event in 2013 showcasing the game's emerging and future tennis stars on the WTA Tour, world class tennis will be in full-swing again this November at the award-winning South Seas Island Resort as the last stop on the 2014 USTA Pro Circuit Women's Calendar and the finale of the 2015 Australian Open Wild Card Challenge.

A new series being put on this year by the USTA Pro Circuit, the Australian Open Wildcard Challenge is designed to award the best performing player during the last three $50,000 USTA Pro Circuit Events in 2014 with a spot in the singles main draw of the 2015 Australian Open.

"We are honored to be hosting the 2014 Women's Pro Classic again this year," said Nick Blackwood, tournament director of the Women's Pro Classic. "We are excited that it will be home to the finale of the 2015 Australia Open Wild Card Challenge and bring out some of the best emerging WTA Tennis stars and high-level professional tennis."

This year's Title Sponsor for the Women's Pro Classic is the South Seas Island Resort with Doc Ford's Rum Bar and Grille as the Presenting Sponsor with additional sponsorship opportunities still available. Along with enhancing the goodwill of the local community, event sponsors will also receive global recognition through the event's live web streaming and media coverage worldwide.
