Experience tennis in San Jose with picture-perfect days and volleys of sunshine.
For the second year in row, Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic lands in San Jose. Held at the new tennis facility off-campus at San Jose State University, the Silicon Valley Classic is the longest-running women-only professional tennis tournament in the world. The first stop of the US Open Series will bring all the big names in tennis to San Jose.
Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic will see star tennis plays like Amanda Anisimova, Danielle Collins, and Venus Williams – who made her professional tournament debut in the Bay Area 24 years ago. The Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic runs July 29 – August 4, 2019 with a special Kids Day on July 29th at the San Jose State University Tennis Complex.

When all the excitement has worked up a hunger, San Jose has great options from quick bites to fine dining. San Pedro Square Market and SoFA Market will please everyone in your group with global restaurants presented in an open market space. Both San Pedro Square and SoFA District also offer an array of sit-down restaurants to get your grub on without straying too far from the action. Get dressed up for dinner at ADEGA, Grandview or La Foret for a high-end experience you won’t forget.

For sports history fans and selfie opportunists, take a quick Uber or Lyft – or an adventurous scooter ride – to the main San Jose State University campus to see the Olympic Black Power Statue honoring the silent black power protest of Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City.
