Pro Link Live to Manage 2019 RBC Pro Challenge at Tyler Athletic and Swim Club

Special Event Management Company to Produce Third Annual USTA Pro Circuit Event

Tyler (April 4, 2019) – Cliff Drysdale Management has selected Pro Link Live to direct the 2019 RBC Pro Challenge, an $80K USTA Pro Circuit event hosted at Tyler Athletic and Swim Club. The third edition of the tournament will be held October 28 – November 3.

Pro Link Live, an Austin, Texas based special event, media and promotions company, has extensive experience producing world class tennis events throughout the United States. They have directed dozens of USTA Pro Circuit events, as well as celebrity exhibitions with some of the biggest names in tennis.  

Pro Link Live will manage event operations, sponsorship, and promotions in conjunction with Cliff Drysdale-managed team at Tyler Athletic and Swim Club. Israel Castillo has been named the new Tournament Director.

“We are very excited to have the Pro Link Live team on board to manage the RBC Pro Challenge,” said Scott McCulloch, Vice President of Operations for Cliff Drysdale Management. “The tournament has become a staple on the calendar of East Texas sports fans each fall. I’m confident in the tournament’s continued growth with an experienced tournament director like Israel at the helm.”

Former players of the RBC Pro Challenge include 2018 champion Whitney Osuigwe, 2017 runner up Danielle Collins, Belinda Bencic, Nicole Gibbs and Sofia Kenin amongst others. The event plays a crucial role in the USTA’s Australian Open Wild Card Challenge each fall.
