Binghamton's Recreation Park will once again host the Levene Gouldin & Thompson $50,000 Tennis Challenger.

The tournament is one of the oldest events on the ATP Challenge Tour. The field will feature 32 singles players and 16 doubles teams.

Top 120 players Bradley Klahn and Denis Kudla will headline the event.

Klahn, the 2013 LG&T singles runner-up and doubles champion, is currently ranked number 75 in the world. Kudla qualified for Wimbledon main draw the past two years.

Tournament Director Laurie Bowen said it's great for the community to experience such a first class event.

"I think over the years we have seen incredible play from all of our players. What's really nice is for the young kids who get to follow and especially the ball runners who get to meet some of these players and follow them throughout their careers. You can see them playing all over the world," said Bowen.

The event will be held from July 14th-20th.

The winner of the tournament receives a men's wild card into the US Open in August.
