Texas’ largest city is a sports town at its core. Home to every single single major professional sports league except for an NHL team, their fans are faithful and passionate. What Houston lacks in a hockey team it more than makes up for with a much more important sporting event: The ATP Tour’s US Men’s Clay Court Championship! The prestigious event is the only clay court professional tennis tournament in the United States. Each year, it attracts some of the top players in the world and some of tennis’ greatest champions, like Agassi, Courier, Haas, Connors and more have lifted the trophy in the past.
Houston boasts over 1,200 public tennis courts in and around the city, offering pristine playing surfaces outdoors with lights, and indoor facilities as well. There is a large USTA contingent in Houston, which means there is always a tournament or league accessible for any type of tennis player.
The Houston Tennis Association is a non-profit headquartered in the city center whose mission is to grow tennis in the city by "promoting and advocating amateur tennis and charitable programs." They organize leagues and tournaments that have a participation of over 10,000 players annually. In their junior programs, over 6,000 kids participate each year. If you want to get further involved in tennis in Houston, TX, the HTA is a great place to start.
