]The Citi Taste of Tennis series is produced by AYS Sports Marketing and was the brainchild of AYS’ founders Judi and Penny Lerner. In 2001, the mother-daughter duo and longtime tennis fans, dreamed of creating an event that combined the international appeal of fine food and professional tennis. And such, Citi Taste of Tennis was born. With over 20 years and hundreds of events under their belt, AYS’ Citi Taste of Tennis has become one of the most anticipated “off the court” events at tennis tournaments worldwide.
