The Toray Pan Pacific Open Tennis Tournament executive committee (headquartered in Tokyo’s Minato ward and led by tournament director Yutaka Nakagawa) is set to hold the largest international women’s tennis tournament in Japan, the Toray Pan Pacific Open Tennis Tournament 2017, for its 34th year. This year the tournament will run from Saturday, September 16, to Sunday, September 24, and will take place on the courts of the Ariake Coliseum and the Ariake Tennis Forest Park. Since the first Toray Pan Pacific Open Tennis Tournament was held in 1984, it has become a major tournament that features the toughest matches between the world’s women’s tennis superstars, captivating tennis fans in Japan. Last year, 18-year-old Naomi Osaka was runner-up, her bullet-like serves bringing the whole venue to a fever pitch. She became the first Japanese player to advance to the final round since Kimiko Date’s win in 1995. Fans can expect this year’s tournament to be nine days of riveting drama that will unfold under the intense scrutiny of tennis lovers from Japan and all over the world. Advance tickets for the Toray Pan Pacific Open Tennis Tournament will go on sale through e+ Ticket at noon on Saturday, May 20. Advance sales includes three-, four-, or seven-day set tickets for a lower price than anywhere else (saving 5-15% off the normal price). Special “S-Category Seat Pair Tickets” for discounted pairs of tickets, “S-Category Seat 2-Day Tickets” for the fans to choose two match days according to the fixtures, “RAKUTEN collaboration tickets” and other tickets will be released soon.
