"I came to the Cayman Islands tournament this past week. I just want to let you know that I was very much impressed with the level of tennis displayed by all players. Comparing the level of tennis I saw before in G5 tournaments with the one I saw last week in Cayman, I’m very happy to say that it was much higher than in years past.

I also like to mention that everything regarding the tournament’s organization like transportation, hotel, club facilities, and mainly the attention we had from tournament director Karl Hale, was very helpful and friendly."

"My name is Christopher Heck and I am playing in the Barbados Cup. I think that Karl, Colleen, and Alex really put on a great tournament. Even with all of the rain delays they managed to figure it out and make it a great event. Great to have lots of referees and overall very smoothly run. They had a nice little opening party during the sign in which I think a lot of people enjoyed very much and the exhibition match that took place Thursday night. Karl even organized a surfing lesson that a few players took part in including myself before the tournament. Overall impressed with the way Karl ran this tournament and I am having a good time here."

Mitch Lake

Anguilla Tennis Acadmey

"Karl and his team at Sports Travel Experts run first class events.  When we announced the Anguilla Cup, I immediately renovated our 6 courts to host the event.  The result was an amazing event with records crowds with German Davis Cup star Philipp Kohlschreiber playing an exhibition. What has followed since we have the renovated courts is:  More locals tournaments, more enrollment at our programs and increased participation as a whole. The Anguilla Cup is now an annual event that our children work towards and our better players work towards earning a trip to the Rogers Cup!"

"Karl is a truly outstanding person.  Not only is he a partner with us via the Anguilla and Antigua Tourist Boards, but when Anguilla got devastated by hurricane Irma. Sports Travel Experts expedited a date change for the event and donated a world class playground for one of the affected schools in Anguilla. One of the best partnerships in my experience. A 1st class organization."
