About the TournamentFull Schedule

We are excited to once again host the 6th annual Texas Tamale Co. Houston Cup presented by PropelDocs. This tournament will bring together 100 tennis players from around the world that are ranked between 250 and 800 in the ATP Rankings. This event will showcase up and coming American Juniors and many current and former collegiate tennis players. It takes place at the George R. Brown Tennis Center at Rice University. This state of the art facility is home to the nationally ranked Rice University Men’s and Women’s Tennis Teams and it is one of the most fan friendly tennis centers in the country.

We are partnering with the Houston Tennis Association, to raise funds for the National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) Foundation. This program offers a chance for thousands of kids the opportunity to participate in tennis related activities free of charge. With the support of our great sponsors and tennis community, Texas Tamale Co. Houston Cup presented by PropelDocs is one of the best Futures tournaments on the USTA Circuit.
