Freedoms move to Villanova

After two seasons outdoors at the King of Prussia Mall, the Freedoms are moving their seven home World Team Tennis matches to the Pavilion at Villanova.

"Villanova, a long-time home to pro tennis in the Philadelphia-area, is a terrific site for the Freedoms," Freedoms owner Billie Jean King said. "The Pavilion enables us to increase our seating capacity and provide indoor, air-conditioned comfort for our fans, while still maintaining the intimate, close-to-the-action atmosphere of World Team Tennis."

Before playing the previous two seasons at the King of Prussia Mall, the Freedoms played several years on the campus of Cabrini College.

"We had great events at the King of Prussia Mall," said Freedoms General Manager Barbara Perry. "Even though we are moving our games to Villanova's campus, the King of Prussia Mall will continue to support us
as a key partner in many of our community initiatives."

"We are thrilled to welcome the Philadelphia Freedoms to Villanova," added Villanova Director of Athletics Vince Nicastro.  This is a wonderful opportunity for our community to experience a terrific family
event featuring some of the world's best players."

The Freedoms are scheduled to announce their top players and put tickets on sale Feb. 3. The team is already accepting reservations at 610-896-2890 or philadelphiafreedoms.com.
