Bronwyn Greer has been named Tournament Director of the Fayez Sarofim & Co. U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship, an ATP World Tour 250 event held annually at Houston’s River Oaks Country Club.
Greer has been elevated to Tournament Director after serving as Tournament Manager since the 2007 event.
“It is an honor to have the opportunity to take this role at such a prestigious tournament,” Greer said. “River Oaks has an incredible history of hosting tennis events, and I look forward to working with our great tournament team to continue to grow the Fayez Sarofim & Co. U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship into an event that our fans, sponsors and the ATP players all eagerly anticipate every April.”
Greer first came to Houston as an intern with the NFL’s Houston Texans and was also involved with the city’s hosting of the 2006 NBA All-Star Game. She first served as Tournament Manager of the US Men’s Clay Court Championship in 2007 when the event was held at Houston’s Westside Tennis Club and made the move with the tournament to River Oaks. While at Westside, Greer was also General Manager of the World Team Tennis Houston Wranglers Franchise.
In addition to this work in Houston, Greer has event experience as a member of the Super Bowl XL Host Committee in Detroit and was a Manager of Overlay Operations for the opening and closing ceremonies and volunteer venues used during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
Greer is a graduate of the University of Windsor in Windsor, Ontario. She received a Masters of Sports Administration and Masters of Business Administration from Ohio University.
River Oaks has annually hosted a tennis tournament since 1931, and has been home to the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship, which began in 1910, since 2008. Greer is just the fourth tournament director in River Oaks history.
She succeeds Van Barry, who stepped down after 23 years as Tournament Director to take over as the Executive Director of the United States Tennis Association Texas Section.
Greer is one of three women currently serving as tournament director at one of the ATP World Tour’s 62 events worldwide.
