A report in the New York Times Sunday makes it appear the Springfield Lasers will be defending their World TeamTennis title in West Virginia.
The league is looking at playing at The Greenbrier, a resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. The resort is owned by the governor of West Virginia, Jim Justice.
“The Greenbrier and World Team Tennis have been in discussions about the WTT visiting America’s Resort this summer,” Greenbrier director of public relations Cam Huffman wrote in an email to the the Charleston Gazette-Mail on Sunday evening. “We are hopeful an announcement will come soon about a partnership between the two groups.”
As reported on May 5, the league is looking at a three week schedule for all teams to play their matches in the centralized location.
The world professional tennis tours are suspended through at least August 3, which would allow the World TeamTennis to host their lockdown season format without major inconvienience to the players.
