To our Texas Tennis Family,
We are heartbroken by the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. As images and news of the destruction have been shared, we are reminded of what is truly important. In the hours and days after Harvey’s landfall, we have witnessed the character, kindness, and dedication to one another that makes Texans family. In the coming weeks and months, we will work together to help rebuild communities and get our fellow Texans back on their feet. We encourage everyone to volunteer and donate as you can, to help the victims of this horrific disaster.
In the wake of this catastrophe, USTA Texas is monitoring and assessing the ever-changing and unprecedented aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Please know that we are exploring and evaluating all options for future events. Decisions will be made with the safety and well being of the Texas Tennis Family as our top priority, and we will continue to inform you as official updates become available.
Thank you for being a part of the Texas Tennis Family, and for working with and supporting each other through this difficult time. We are Texas Strong.
Van Barry, USTA Texas Executive Director
