A 32-player field restarts local tennis on Wednesday when the PPS-PEPP Olivarez Cup Open Tennis Championship returns after a two-year hiatus at Olivarez Sports Center in Sucat.

The pandemic ground sports to a halt early in 2020, but the likes of multititled and many-time national team spearhead Jeson Patrombon, young Jed Olivarez and the ageless Johnny Arcilla are raring to go in the weeklong championship that stakes P30,000 to the champion.

Rising stars Vicente Anasta, Josshua Kinaadman, Mark Alcoseba, Norman Enriquez and Noel Damian Jr. are also entered in the singles.

Four others coming from qualifying that will end on Tuesday will join the main draw.

Also on tap is the men’s doubles, including the Legends 30s, 40s and 50s divisions.

The PPS-PEPP has been in the forefront of tennis development in the country the past decade or so with its annual nationwide series until the pandemic disrupted play in all sports.

Meanwhile, Anasta and Patrombon, and Arcilla and Kyle Dandan banner the doubles’ field.
