BREAKERS FINALIZE HOME VENUE, RETURN TO NEWPORT BEACH ROOTS
Breakers Stadium at Newport Beach Tennis Club is set to welcome Mylan World TeamTennis fans this summer.
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (January 27, 2016) – The Orange County Breakers, who recently announced their return to Southern California and Mylan World TeamTennis, have secured a permanent outdoor home venue at the Newport Beach Tennis Club.
"We are thrilled that the Breakers have found an outdoor venue to call home at the Newport Beach Tennis Club,” said Breakers General Manager Allen Hardison. “The Breakers have a long history in this city and Breakers Stadium at Newport Beach Tennis Club will offer tennis fans the perfect setting to watch world-class tennis."
The venue will officially be named Breakers Stadium at the Newport Beach Tennis Club during the upcoming Mylan WTT regular season, which is scheduled for July 31-August 13. The Breakers will play 12 total matches during the 2016 regular season, with six on the road and six at home in Newport Beach.
The Newport Beach Tennis Club is well-suited for the Breakers and other large scale tennis events, as the club has previously hosted a United States Davis Cup tie and numerous pro exhibitions. The intimate venue is certain to create an atmosphere that will be enjoyable to fans of all ages.
“Bringing the Breakers and Mylan World TeamTennis to the Newport Beach Tennis Club is something that we have been looking into the past few years,” said Newport Beach Tennis Club Owner Steve Joyce. “Breakers matches will bring Newport Beach and Orange County residents access to some of the best tennis players on the tours. Our club is excited to be a part of that and play a role in bringing the Breakers and professional tennis back to Newport Beach.”
The Breakers, who won the 2004 Mylan WTT championship, called Newport Beach home from 2003-2011. However, the community has since felt the void of professional tennis and Kevin Muldoon, the City of Newport Beach’s Mayor Pro Tem was the first to welcome the team back. “We're excited to welcome the Breakers back to Newport Beach and look forward to watching them compete at their new home venue, the Newport Beach Tennis Club,” said Muldoon
Breakers season tickets will go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, February 3 at 10:00 am PST. Season tickets will start as low as $210 and all seating will be reserved. The team will also offer VIP tables directly above the baseline that will include full food and beverage service. Individual match tickets will go on sale later this spring.
Aside from the Mylan WTT action on the court, Breakers matches will feature post-match autograph sessions for kids 16 and under, a booth row with activities and promotional giveaways, multiple concession options, Breakers Team Store, theme nights, pre-match entertainment and much more.
