HISTORY
"To the Player Who Yearly Makes the Most Notable Contribution to the Sportsmanship, Fellowship, and Service of Tennis."  This inscription is engraved on the Service Bowl trophy donated by Mrs. Lyman H.B. Olmsted and a group of thirty New England women in 1940 to honor the example of Mrs. Hazel H. Wightman. The Service Bowl Award is an annual award that was limited to New England women tennis players for the first four years.  Since 1944, it has been awarded on a nationwide basis, usually by the USTA President during the US Open.
