Abilene loved hosting the UTSA Texas Junior Team Tennis for their Fall 2014 JTT Section Championships! Over 1,000 players and fans poured into Abilene resulting in an economic impact of $220, 000 during their stay.

82 teams with 475 players from across Texas competed at 10 different sites in the city. Not only were they competing to win their tennis matches, but they also participated in a social media contest hosted by Abilene Convention and Visitors Bureau called “USTA JTT: Let’s Get Social”! Players and families uploaded photos around specific sites in Abilene, using required hashtags to win first, second, and third place prizes. The winners were announced at the player party hosted by PrimeTime Entertainment!
