Houston is still recovering after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey last fall. A few stars from the Fayez Sarofim & Co. US Men’s Clay Court Championships are doing their part to help Sunnyside Park get its tennis courts back.
When Hurricane Harvey hit Houston last year, the tennis courts at Sunnyside Park were completely underwater. We’ve been pleased to work alongside @atpworldtour stars like the Bryan Brothers, Frances Tiafoe, and John Isner in an effort to resurface them and get our friends at the @houstontennisassociation back on court. #USClay #HoustonStrong
John Isner, Frances Tiafoe and Bob and Mike Bryan helped raise awareness to get the courts resurfaced, by hitting with some of the local children and donating to the cause.
It wasn’t just Isner, Tiafoe, and the Bryans helping out the Houston community. Defending champion Steve Johnson, Sam Querrey and coach Brad Gilbert visited Sunnyside Park too.
Thank you @SamQuerrey @SJohnson_89 and @bgtennisnation for visiting Sunnyside Park and helping with efforts to resurface their courts after Hurricane Harvey. #ustatexas #houstonstrong @mensclaycourt pic.twitter.com/n7t3zP4Zr1— USTA Texas (@USTATexas) April 12, 2018
The tournament is held on the red clay of River Oaks, not far from Sunnyside Park.
