Legends return

The Cayman Islands sports scene will see the return of a marquee event next year. 

The Legends tennis tournament is scheduled to return Feb. 13-14, 2015, with Camana Bay’s Festival Green serving as the venue. The event will feature exhibition matches in the men’s singles, mixed and celebrity doubles. A host of top players will take center stage, namely Anna Kournikova, Lindsay Davenport, Andy Roddick, Jim Courier and Murphy Jensen. 

It has been three years since the last Legends event, with the Ritz-Carlton tennis courts serving as the venue in 2012. Martina Hingis, Greg Norman and Richard Branson headlined that competition.  

Next February’s tournament will mark the spectacle’s 12th edition on these shores. In the past, the Legends competition bolstered local tennis efforts by hosting youth clinics for more than 1,000 school children and donating over $15,000 in equipment.
