ATC Wins Third Consecutive Texas Cup

Written by atc admin

The Austin Tennis Club won its third consecutive Texas Cup Sunday, July 17, at the UT Whitaker Courts in one of the closest, hottest, and most exciting tournaments in Cup history.

With San Antonio (TCSA) and Austin tied, the championship came down to one match - the last doubles match on the court Sunday afternoon between ATC and TCSA.  ATC’s Beau Hinton and Wayne Douglas pulled out a thrilling third-set victory in front of approximately 50 screaming fans from Austin and San Antonio. The final score for the 2016 Texas Cup: Austin 35, San Antonio 33, Houston 15 and Dallas 13.

ATC congratulates all of the Texas Cup players from Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. This was San Antonio’s first appearance at Texas Cup and they brought a strong team and helped make the tournament memorable. ATC would also like to thank our Co-Captains Darin Upchurch and Aubrey Wilkerson, along with all the volunteers (members, spouses, friends) who helped carry dozens of cases of water and bags of ice and make our out-of-town guests feel welcomed.

We also want to thank long-time ATC member Roger Mills and Patsy Mills, our Official ATC Mom, for running the tournament desk and ensuring everything went smoothly.
