Look at Turkish Antalya, both towns are mass tourist destinations that receive millions of visitors throughout the year. Thus, the facilities are already there (good hospitality, tennis courts). Having the lowest category tournament here every week, combined with accepting every entrant (128 Q Draw), assures them of a stable influx of income for the facilities there throughout the whole year.
= It doesn't cost them much to organize the events, yet it brings quite some money to the area.
