The Calgary National Bank Challenger is only going into its second year, but its official player lineup will be a huge win for any tennis superfan. The tournament somewhat quietly launched last year, but clearly year two is going to be major!

As announced by the tournament director Danny Dacosta, 40 players, some of which are well-known, will compete in the weeklong event at the end of this month. Wowza, that’s going to be a lot of tennis.

2019 Post Media’s Male Athlete of the Year Vasek Pospisil will be joined by world-renowned player Ivo Karlovic. Other notable players also include Dominik Koepfer, who is currently 89th in the entire world. Also, watch for former top 50, Davis Cup and NCAA Men’s Singles 2017 Champion Thai-Son Kwiatkowski. Thing’s are about to get serious, folks!

Tickets are available here, and you won’t want to miss it. Considering a lot of these guys just came back from either Wimbledon or the Australian Open, we’re assuming we’ll see some incredible matchups.
