Randy Snow
It has been an exciting year for Wheelchair Tennis, and this summer Wheelchair Tennis superstar and three-time Paralympic medalist, Randy Snow, will take center stage.  This June, Randy Snow will be inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame and receive his own "neighborhood" on the "Avenue of Aces" at the Billie Jean King Tennis Center in Flushing, NY.

Snow is the second wheelchair tennis player in history to be honored with induction to the International Tennis Hall of Fame, joining Brad Parks, the pioneering founder of the sport, who was inducted in 2010. Snow's Hall of Fame induction will be a posthumous recognition of his achievements and contributions to the sport. He passed away on Nov. 19, 2009, in El Salvador while volunteering at a wheelchair tennis camp. For more information on the induction ceremony, please visit  http://www.tennisfame.com/.

And more exciting news is that USTA Serves, the National Charitable Foundation of the USTA, has announced that it will complement its donor-supported Avenue of Aces by adding new "neighborhoods" honoring US Open singles champions, including wheelchair tennis pioneer Randy Snow.  Also being honored with neighborhoods this year are Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, and Stefanie Graf. They join tennis legends Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Ivan Lendl, John McEnroe and Billie Jean King in lending their names to the Avenue of Aces charitable initiative, which allows the public to order their own personalized pavers. 

The Avenue of Aces provides an opportunity for supporters of USTA Serves to create a lasting legacy by ordering personalized pavers on the grounds of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.  USTA Serves, the National Charitable Foundation of the USTA, provides financial support for disadvantaged youth and people with disabilities through tennis and education programs designed to improve health, build character, teach life skills and motivate students to strive for academic excellence. For more information on USTA Serves, visit www.ustaserves.com.
