Center Court at Creekside Greenbrier

A two-day tennis exhibition will be held as scheduled in September at The Greenbrier resort despite recent floods.

The resort announced Monday that the 2,500-seat tennis stadium in White Sulphur Springs will be cleaned up before the exhibition on Sept. 17 and 18.

The event includes singles and doubles matches involving Venus Williams, Madison Keys, Pete Sampras and John McEnroe.

The resort, including the year-old stadium, was flooded following heavy rains on June 23. Fifteen people died in Greenbrier County and 23 were killed statewide.
