The Orange County Breakers are a World TeamTennis (WTT) franchise founded in 2003, owned by Canadian businessman Lorne Abony. The team, then known as the Newport Beach Breakers, won the WTT championship in 2004. In 2014, the franchise moved to Greater Austin, Texas, where it was known as the Austin Aces. On December 14, 2015, the Aces announced that the team would move back to Orange County, California for the 2016 season and be renamed the Orange County Breakers.[1] The Breakers play their home matches at Breakers Stadium at the Newport Beach Tennis Club.[2]
