Pilot Pen, Tournament To Part Ways After 2010 Event

The Pilot Pen tennis tournament is seeking a new title sponsor for the 2011 tournament and beyond, tournament director Anne Worcester announced Tuesday in a press release. The 2010 tournament is Aug. 20-28 at the Connecticut Tennis Center at Yale and will mark Pilot Pen's 15th year as title sponsor.

"We have enjoyed being the title sponsor of the Pilot Pen Tennis tournament," Dennis Burleigh, president and CEO of Pilot Pen Corporation of America, said in a statement. "Unfortunately, the economic recession has severely impacted our consumers and the office products industry in particular, necessitating this difficult decision."

Worcester said she believes a sponsor will be found.

"We firmly believe that Pilot Pen Corporation's long-term support of the Pilot Pen Tennis tournament has helped us grow the sport of tennis in the Northeast and put us in a solid position to attract a new title sponsor," said Worcester. "A combined men's and women's tournament is a very desirable sports property and will appeal to national and regional partners alike."

It's a good thing you attend the matches, since they only televise 4 matches.

Re: Bye Bye Pilot Pen

For the 2nd time of the year, Wozniacki won the title last year and the sponsor withdrew (PVB, remember? )
She better not win any slam otherwise it would be downgraded to a 100k

Re: Bye Bye Pilot Pen

We should buy more pliot pens to have them to get more money to gain back the sponsor

Zheng Jie, you are always my favourite
