The Hackberry Creek Country Club ladies’ USTA 3.5 tennis team is heading to Palm Springs, CA for the national competition October 9 – 11!
The ladies’ journey to nationals began this spring, when the team won their division 8-0 to qualify for the city championships. At that competition, they battled fellow ClubCorp clubs, Brookhaven and Canyon Creek Country Clubs, to win five straight matches and cinch the victory.
Texas is such a huge and very competitive state, that it is a section unto itself. At sectionals, the team played well, and was 3-1 going into the semis. They won the semi competition, defeating Dallas Country Club 4-1. In winning sectionals, they defeated the best that Texas could offer, including teams from San Antonio, Austin, Amarillo and Dallas.
Good luck to the Hackberry ladies as they take on the best 3.5 teams across the country!
