Ojai History:

The Pac-10 championships will again be the featured event at this year's 108th Ojai Valley Tennis Tournament, which attracts 1600 of the best college, junior and open players from the Western states. The annual event, started by William Thacher in 1896, has been played at the same site, and interrupted only

five times. If this tournament, run entirely by volunteer effort on public and privately owned courts, seems an unlikely place to see championship quality players, consider who has appeared here: Pete Sampras, Lindsay Davenport, Michael Chang, Rick Leach, Tracy Austin, Billy Jean King, Arthur Ashe, Jimmy Connors and the Bryan twins. These tennis greats are among more than 85 former players at The Ojai who have gone on to win one or more Grand Slam events as professional tennis players, all of whom are listed on Libbey Park's 'Wall of Fame.'
