HOUSTON - The University of Houston Women's Tennis team will close out tournament play this weekend by hosting the annual Tennis Express Houston Open at John E. Hoff Courts beginning on Friday.
Houston welcomes a talented field that includes Arkansas, Auburn, Denver, Idaho, Iowa State, Lamar, Liberty, North Texas, Oregon, Rice, TCU and Texas State. Play will begin at 8:30 a.m., on Friday and Saturday and 8:00 a.m., on Sunday and each student-athlete will play one singles and one doubles round all three days.
"We have worked hard this fall and are looking forward to finishing the season on a high note," head coach Patrick Sullivan said. "We have some very tough competition coming and we are excited to be tested. I'm on my way back from a recruiting trip to Europe in which I saw snow, so I'm excited to get back to the great Houston weather and watching our team close the fall out strong."
Sophomore transfer Elena Kordolaimi has been the most consistent this fall, posting a 5-2 singles mark that includes a flight title at the Razorback Classic.
The main parking lot for the tournament is lot 15H, located between the tennis courts and softball stadium, with overflow parking in lot 16D, located on the corner of Elgin and Cullen at the end of the intramural fields.
