Re: Challenger venues with the highest elevation

Couldn't find reliable data for An-Ning (or Anning) altitude in mountainous Chinese province Yunnan. The nearest city Kunming has 1,892 m (6,207 ft) elevation. Anning is located approximately 28 kilometers southwest of Kunming city

This year Bogota isn't in the current calendar http://www.atpworldtour.com/~/media/...88FA38D34.ashx yet.
I hope we'll see it on November list. If so, of course, I will add Bogota to OP

Re: Challenger venues with the highest elevation

Hard court is the ATP tournament, not the Challenger.

Re: Challenger venues with the highest elevation

Lima elevation is changed from 0 to 1,550 m (0-5,090 ft). Challenger venue Country Club La Planicie is located in mountainous city part (district La Molina) and could be sufficiently high over sea level. However, I didn't find exact elevation numbers for it and for this reason didn't include Lima in the list
