The Citi Taste of Tennis series is produced by AYS Sports Marketing and was the brainchild of AYS’ founders Judi and Penny Lerner. Back in 2001 Judi and Penny, both longtime tennis fans, dreamed of creating an event that combined the international appeal of fine food and professional tennis. The Citi Taste of Tennis was born, and now 20 years later it has become one of the most anticipated “off the court” event at tennis tournaments nationwide.

Tickets to the event are $200 and include unlimited food and drink throughout the evening. Group discounts are also available. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit and be sure to follow #CitiTasteofTennis on social media for updates.
