This spring, when Bausch & Lomb ended its 22-year sponsorship of the Tier II green clay tournament at Amelie Island, Florida, tournament officials announced they were searching for a new sponsor. The good news is that a new sponsor has emerged--the MPS Group. The sad news for those who have attended the tournament for so long is that it is being moved to the Sawgrass Country Club at Ponte Vedre Beach, Florida.
The tournament will be called the MPS Group Championships and will be held at the same time the Amelia Island tournament was held. Matches will be played on HAR-TRU clay courts.
