“We are so excited to host the tournament again this year,” stated Club Director, Scott McCulloch. “The support we received last year from the New Braunfels community  and surrounding areas was overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to providing an even better event in 2013, as well as more chances to give back to the community and give everyone a chance to have interaction with the pros via our Kids Day, USTA and Heroes Appreciation Days.”

Located on Mission Valley Rd just off of Highway 46W, The John Newcombe Country Club is a world-class amenity center operated by the tennis management industry leader Cliff Drysdale Tennis.
