Euro Red Clay Tennis at the Village of Time, a new tennis facility in Dripping Springs, Texas, successfully hosted the USTA Open Tournament, May 10-12, 2019.
Players and visitors alike expressed their delight with the courts and the venue. Despite torrential rains in the days leading up the tournament, the clay courts remained in top playing condition for the entire tournament. “We built these courts using the very latest techniques and technologies, and true red clay imported from Italy. The courts were designed to withstand the harshest weather Texas has to offer, and that was proven this past weekend,” stated Sami Philip Rebeiz who is helping build the Village of Time.
Saturday brought heavy rains in the earlier part of the day, but once the weather cleared tournament matches resumed and were able to be completed thanks to the state of the art LED Techlight System at the Euro Red Clay Tennis venue. Players and visitors were treated to Mediterranean fare served by Tipsy Pizza, and spectators enjoyed watching the matches from the comfort of shaded seating above the courts.
