Wednesday, August 4, 2010 • Posted August 4, 2010

The Dr Pepper Open Tennis Tournament waited for the hottest weekend of the year to kick-off, but the weather couldn’t deter the great matches that was played at the Helen Tallent Tennis Center and county courts. The annual event that has attracted players from all over the United States was featured in a Sports Illustrated article in 1976.

At that time, the Dr Pepper Open was the 3rd largest tournament in the state of Texas with over 1000 entries. With tournaments all over the state, most non-sanctioned tournaments will have fewer than 200 entries. Mason had 660 entries from as far away as Palm Beach, Fl. and South Carolina. Almost all of the area towns were well represented as were Dallas, Lubbock, Corpus Christi, Austin, and San Antonio, Odessa, and San Angelo. In the infamous words of Maudell McDonald…"A good time was had by all."
