Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray’s Binghamton Connection

Eight years ago a young British tennis phenom won the Levene Gouldin & Thompson Tennis Challenger at Rec Park here in Binghamton.  He went on to win the US Open and score gold in the Olympics. This year, he became the first “Brit” to win Wimbledon since 1936.

Andy Murray has a lot to be proud of. Actually, we do to. We have a hockey team, baseball team, the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open and the Levene Gouldin & Thompson Tennis Challenger.

This remarkable tournament give us, in little old Binghamton, the chance to see soon-to-be tennis icons play in our backyard. FOR FREE this weekend! Seriously. It’s free!

So, head down to Rec Park Saturday and Sunday to see the tennis action. The tournament continues through the 21st and the winner could become a wild card in the US Open.

Besides Murray, other notable players include Ryan Harrison, a participant last year and now on the David Cup team, James Blake and Lleyton Hewitt. Not bad, huh?

Join the fun this weekend and try something different, bring the kids or root for a future world draw.  For more details visit the Challenger website.
