2012 Paul G. Sullivan Clay Championships at Frick Park - photo by Peg Heaney
The former "Pittsburgh Parks Championships" – held at the Frick Park Clay Courts since their inauguration in 1930 – remain a memorable center stage of public park tennis in the City. Renamed in 2002 after longtime director Paul Sullivan, this legendary tournament has been revitalized since 2007 by the Frick Park Clay Court Tennis Club. It is now USTA-sanctioned, but USTA membership is NOT required. Entries are open to all men and women 16 years and older, both City and non-City residents.
In 2012, more than 175 players participated, and an independent, local flex league voted it the best organized tournament in the City. Matches are held all day Saturdays and Sundays and on weekday evenings (all schedules posted online).
