Fayez Sarofim & Co. U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship at River Oaks Country Club

River Oaks Country Club is hosting a professional tennis tournament for the 84th time when the 2018 Fayez Sarofim & Co. U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship is held April 7-15. River Oaks first hosted its own tournament, The River Oaks International, in 1931, and its roster of former champions includes Jack Kramer, Tony Trabert, Rod Laver, Roy Emerson, Ken Rosewall, Ivan Lendl, Guillermo Vilas and James Blake. Houston is the 21st city to host the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship. The tournament came to Houston in 2001, and has been hosted at River Oaks since 2008. Started in 1910 by the USTA, the 2018 tournament will be the 108th competition for the Clay Court Championship.

The tournament beneficiary are the National Junior Tennis & Learning programs of the Houston Tennis Association. More information about the tournament can be found at www.mensclaycourt.com.

 

Editors Note: Why do we post all of this info you ask? Because tennis needs sponsors and FANS and players, etc… and did I mention SPONSORS! Sponsors are the “lifeblood” of the sport. This tournament was not run into the ground by the “undertakers”… You know like Los Angeles, and MEMPHIS, and how many tennis tourneys did the state of California have? Ticket prices must be lowered globally. When one percenters say tennis is very expensive to attend, then tennis is overpriced! Back in the day ticket prices varied, but even the highest price seat was reasonable. And back in the day the sponsors money paid the players not the seat holders. And upgrades to stadiums and venues….

All people want is the same.

Shade. Restrooms. Water. And watching tennis from stadiums that aren’t ginormous…. Or not paying $25 for parking (cash)… (no receipt)…. Before your tennis day even starts. (LJ)
