February Happenings in Delray Beach
After the holidays, our high season is in full swing and continues during the month of February in Delray Beach.
We all continue to explore the weekly Green Market every Saturday 9:00-2:00 at Old School Square, and here are a few other events residents, snowbirds and visitors can enjoy this month:
Laugh with The Library

The Delray Beach Open
The highlight of the month is certainly The Delray Beach Tennis Open at The Delray Beach Tennis Center. This exciting tennis event attracts 55,000 spectators annually and is touted as the world’s only 10-day ATP Champions Tour and ATP World Tour event. The Open consists of tough tennis competitions/matches between the top athletes on the circuit today. It also brings back the legends. There are also multiple dining and networking events that take place in the on-site Hospitality Pavilion (ie VIP Reception, Box Series Holders’ Reception, Chamber Bash, Ladies Luncheons). Tennis enthusiasts can also take advantage of unique and competitive amateur tennis opportunities held on the grounds of the event (ie Legends Clinic, ATP Doubles Pro-Am, Tennis on Campus Collegiate Challenge, Mega-Mixer, College Matches, USPTA Fast 4 Event & Woman’s Round-Robin).
