Come join us for the 34th Annual Society of Petroleum Engineers Gulf Coast Section Tennis Tournament on November 2 and 3, 2017 at the Copperfield Racquet & Health Club!
Proceeds from the tournament benefit the SPE-GCS Scholarship Fund, which supports college students studying petroleum engineering, math and sciences. In combination with other section functions, there have been 33 new scholarships for incoming college freshman studying petroleum engineering, math, science, as well as 70 renewed scholarships for sophomores, juniors and seniors to continue in petroleum engineering. More than $3 million in scholarships has been awarded to well-deserving students through this program since 1963.
In 2016, we had a very successful tournament with over 60 players participating. Registrations and sponsorships raised $9,000. After tournament expenses, net proceeds of almost $2,500 were 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. Please see the Sponsor Form for sponsorship levels. In-kind donations for ditty bags and door prizes are also accepted.
The 2017 SPE-GCS Tennis Committee looks forward to seeing everyone for two fun-filled days of tennis competition!
