31st Annual SPE-GCS Tennis Tournament

 

Come join us for the 31st Annual Society of Petroleum Engineers Gulf Coast Section Tennis Tournament on November 6 and 7, 2014 at the Houston Racquet Club!

Proceeds from the tournament benefit the SPE-GCS Scholarship Fund. In combination with other section functions, there have been 33 new scholarships for incoming college freshman studying petroleum engineering, math and sciences, and 70 renewed scholarships which include sophomores, juniors and seniors for their continued education in petroleum engineering. More than $3 million dollars in scholarships have been awarded since 1963 to students through this program.

In 2013, we had a very successful tournament with over 115 players participating. Registrations and sponsorships raised $55,000 in revenue. After tournament expenses, net proceeds of over $39,600 dollars were contributed to the SPE-GCS Scholarship Fund.

Sponsors are a welcome and an essential part of making this event a success. All sponsors will be recognized in the tournament program and on the sponsorship billboard that is exhibited throughout the tournament.

Please see the Tennis Entry and Sponsorship Form below for sponsorship levels.

In-kind donations for ditty bags and door prizes are also welcomed.
