he Vegas Rollers, our city’s first and only professional tennis team, is gearing up to serve a second action-packed mixed-format- season, with more matches played by marquee athletes The Bryan Brothers and Sam Querrey. Season and individual match tickets go on sale to the general public Wednesday, March 4 at 12:00 p.m., ahead of the first matches for the 2020 World TeamTennis (WTT) season.

In addition, Las Vegas resident and United States Davis Cup player Sam Querrey will also play the full season for the Rollers.
“The Vegas Rollers broke attendance and TV viewership records last year, and the combination of entertainment and tennis made it incredible,” said the team’s President of the Board Ryan Wolfington. “The most amazing thing was how the city’s leaders and the whole community came out to cheer on Vegas’s newest professional sports team. Much of the success was due to our incredible Advisory Board and the leadership of our General Manager Sally Dewhurst.”
“With this being the last season of our career before we retire, we are so grateful to finish strong in Las Vegas, the home of our Team Bryan Youth Program and a place of so many special memories,” said Rollers player Bob Bryan. “We love Las Vegas and last year was by far the best WTT season we have ever been a part of.”
