This season the Rice Owls tennis teams began using their new facilities, the George R. Brown Tennis Center. Both of the tennis teams are quite strong this year and are ranked within the top 50.
In 1929, the men’s team performed well and won three of their seven meets. The men might have performed a bit better in lighter clothing, though. One piece of their uniform was a heavy wool sweater. I am not sure how they survived playing in a material so thick, itchy, and hot, but here’s proof.
The current men’s team should be happy that long pants, long sleeved shirts, and sweaters are a thing of the past.
