Come join us for the 32nd Annual Society of Petroleum Engineers Gulf Coast Section Tennis Tournament on November 5 and 6, 2015 at the Houston Racquet Club!
Proceeds from the tournament benefit the SPE-GCS Scholarship Fund. In combination with other section functions, there have been 25 new scholarships for incoming college freshman studying petroleum engineering, math and sciences, and 58 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 2014, we had a very successful tournament with 115 players participating. Registrations and sponsorships raised over $35,000 in revenue. After tournament expenses, net proceeds of $9,500 was contributed to the SPE-GCS Scholarship Fund.
Sponsors are a welcome and 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.
