Pyrotek Special Effects Inc. was thrilled to add an extra level of excitement to one of tennis’s top international tournaments, The Rogers Cup.
The tournament which is recognized as one of 10 Tier I tournaments on the WTA Tour, offers US $1.325 million in prize money and attracted the stars and fans of tennis worldwide. Pyrotek Special Effects’ Doug Adams explains, “It’s great to have such a well known international event in your own backyard and we look forward to embracing and adding to the spectacle of the sport every year.”
This year at the Rexall Centre in Toronto Canada, today’s top women’s tennis players showcased their skills on the Canadian courts. The tournament alternates the men’s and women’s competition annually between Toronto and Montreal. Wimbledon and the U.S. Open are the only two tournaments that have longer histories than the major Canadian stop.
The nine-day event showcased three prime time matches in which Pyrotek provided an outdoor fireworks display celebrating the match successor. The effects consisted of 102 red comets with tail chase; 27 multi-shot comet boards; and 54 silver comets with tails.
