The first edition of the ATP National Bank challenger was held in Calgary in 2018. Since then, the tournament has become one of the most prestigious indoor tennis tournaments in the world. Each year, the event takes place at the OSTEN & VICTOR Alberta Tennis Centre – Calgary’s community-based, state-of-the-art tennis facility.
The ATP National Bank Challenger sees world-class tennis professionals compete. Tourism Calgary’s marketing and servicing support over the past several years has helped enhance the overall experience and sell out the tournament and expand to include a women’s tournament. In 2022, the combined men’s and women’s event generated over $3.2 million in economic impact.
Each year, the event serves as a platform to raise funds for important organizations including Friends of Ron Ghitter Fund for Kids, Royal Canadian Legion, Kidsport Calgary, and Tsuut'ina Nation.
