About the Waco Showdown
The Waco Showdown is in its third year of existence, bringing professional tennis to Waco free of charge. It is hosted by the Waco Tennis Association…a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit entity working to promote and develop tennis in the greater Waco community. All proceeds from the Waco Showdown will be used by the WTA to hold free developmental clinics to those interested in learning more about tennis.
About the USTA Pro Circuit
With approximately 90 tournaments hosted annually throughout the country and prize money ranging from $10,000 to $100,000, the USTA Pro Circuit is the pathway to the US Open and tour-level competition for aspiring tennis players and a frequent battleground for established professionals. Celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2014, the USTA Pro Circuit provides players with the opportunity to gain professional ranking points, and it has since grown to become the largest developmental tennis circuit in the world, offering nearly $3 million in prize money. Last year, more than 1,000 men and women from more than 70 countries competed in cities nationwide. John Isner, Maria Sharapova, Sam Querrey, Sloane Stephens, Mardy Fish, Victoria Azarenka and Andy Murray are among today’s top stars who began their careers on the USTA Pro Circuit.

We're very excited that the USTA has chosen Waco to host an event of this size and prestige. It's a big win for the Waco community especially sports fans and local businesses. It's a unique opportunity to watch some of the top female tennis players in the world compete live and up close.
