Stowe Open

The Stowe Open, also known in 1978 and 1979 by its sponsored name English Leather Grand Prix and from 1983 onward as the Head Classic, was a Grand Prix affiliated men's tennis tournament played from 1978 to 1983. It was held in Stowe, Vermont in the United States and played on outdoor hard courts.
