Washington Business Climate Claims Another Victim

International Tennis Tour Operator Relocates to Phoenix
Tennis Ventures, an official tour operator of the Australian Open, recently relocated its corporate headquarters to Phoenix. The international tour operator previously was based in Spokane. Under Governor Jan Brewer, Arizona has earned a reputation for being business-friendly and aggressively recruiting businesses — and the jobs they create.

“Tennis Ventures is the only all-inclusive tour operator in the U.S. sanctioned by the Australian Open,” according to CEO Chadwick Byrd. Tennis Ventures is also the only Grand Slam tour operator that offers organized professional tennis clinics and play nearly every day during their trips. Travelers not only see Grand Slam tournament action, they get tennis instruction from international and US tennis pros. On most programs participants get the chance to rub elbows with past tennis greats.

According to Byrd, the company plans to develop domestic tennis camps in the Valley. “Our camps will bring tennis players from across the northern states and Canada to the warm weather of the Valley during the winter and early spring. These programs will not only bring business to local hotels, restaurants, and shops, but will also utilize local tennis professionals and tennis facilities.” Byrd says the company is working with a Former Wimbledon Champion to headline as Tennis Director for these camps.
