Anticipation Builds Ahead of Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo from 26 September to 2 October 2010

DirectRooms.com is pleased to announce the annual Toray Pan Pacific Open Tennis Tournament, to be held from the 26th September to the 2nd October 2010 at Tokyo’s Ariake Coliseum.

The world’s top female tennis players and scores of enthusiastic fans will descend on Tokyo this autumn for the tournament. The champion stands to win more than $2 million US, making this one of Asia’s most lucrative professional tournaments.

The Toray Pan Pacific Open is a Tier I event on the Women’s Tennis Association circuit. There will be a singles’ competition as well as a doubles’ tournament. Past winners of the Open include legends Martina Navratilova and Steffi Graf, and more recent superstars Lindsay Davenport and Venus Williams.

Tickets are now available for purchase at the Ariake Coliseum box offices or through various online retailers.

The tournament venue is located at 2-2-22 Ariake, Koto-ku, Tokyo. The coliseum is easily accessible by train—take the Arike-Tenisunomori or the Kokusai-Tenjijo.

“It’s not often that world-class women’s professional tennis comes to Tokyo, so this is a very exciting event,” said Lek Boonlert, head of marketing at DirectRooms.com. “We are expected quite a crowd for the tournament, and we anticipate that cheap Tokyo hotels will be hard to come by this September.”

An athlete (or any visitor to the site) can easily connect with a coach through the online directory and a simple contact form. The coaches in Extra Edge Training’s online directory must fulfill certain qualifications, and all are subject to background checks. At this time, coaches range from current collegiate athletes to those with over 20 years of coaching experience. Additionally, Extra Edge Training’s directory contains coaches in 13 different sports, including: baseball, basketball, field hockey, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, squash, strength & conditioning, tennis, volleyball, and wrestling.

Brendan Fitzgerald, CEO of Extra Edge Training, said about the service, “Youth athletes who are serious about improving their skills and playing at the next level should take advantage of the upcoming summer months to work with a private coach to elevate their game.” While youth athletes continue to spend resources to improve their skills in a variety of ways, it is widely known that a personal coach is often the best way to achieve actual results. Extra Edge Training is the first service that provides these athletes with an easy-to-use online platform for selecting the best coach in their area to help achieve their athletic goals.
