City commissioners in Delray Beach will vote whether or not to put in bid to host prestigious tennis event
The City Commission will likely give Assistant City Manager Bob Barcinski permission to bid on becoming a host city for the Davis Cup Finals.
The Davis Cup is considered one of the world's most prestigious tennis tournaments and Delray Beach city leaders estimate it could bring $2 million in economic impact for hotels, restaurants and shops.
Barcinski said the city needs about $400,000 to bid. That money likely would come from sponsors, grants and the local Community Redevelopment Agency.
It's estimated that 3,000 visitors, players and organizers would show up in town to attend the Davis Cup.
The city already hosts a smaller ATP event at the Tennis Center.
