Click here for a recap of the 2017 Cajun Classic

We are excited to announce that the Cajun Classic has been named a Super Series level tournament, one of only two in the United States and one of only six in the world. The Super Series is significant -- it's just one step below the Grand Slams (U.S. Open, French Open, Australian Open, and Wimbledon).

This Super Series designation will attract even more top-ranked professionals who will come to Baton Rouge to compete for more ranking points and prize money. In 2017, the Cajun Classic attracted 115 professionals and amateurs from 19 countries, 23 states, and Baton Rouge.

This great news brings a greater need for financial support, as we will need to accommodate more players, matches, meals and tournament activities.


Your contributions help defray tournament expenses, such as court costs, balls, tournament officials (travel and stipends), food, drinks and other real costs.

Every dollar counts. When you give at these levels, your donation helps cover these essential costs:

$100+ helps pay for tournament officials, courts, food, etc.
$100 helps sponsor a player in the tournament
$75 purchases a case of balls for the tournament
$50 buys a tank of gas for the handicapped-accessible vans for the players
$25 buys three shirts for the volunteer ball kids
