Waco getting National Junior College Tennis Championship Event

Waco, Tx The Waco Sports Commission is bringing the 2018 National Junior College Women's Tennis Championship to Waco.

The event will be played in early May of 2018 at the Waco Regional Tennis and Fitness facility near MCC. 30 teams will be playing in the national championship event and that means a big boost economically for the area for that week as well.

Will Phipps, Executive Director of the Greater Waco Sports Commission says, "we identified this event as being a perfect fit for Waco because of our premier facility and the community's love for quality tennis."

The event has been in Tyler and Tucson in alternating years recently, and Phipps says he hopes that Waco will be a part of the rotation going forward.
