HALL OF FAME
October 27, 2017
The USTA Southwest Tennis Hall of Fame was established in 1991 to recognize those members of the Section, both players and non-players, whose achievements and contributions are worthy of the highest commendation and recognition.
The Southwest Section Tennis Hall of Fame will consist of those who have made the most outstanding contributions to tennis in the Southwest Section. These women and men will be divided into two categories, player and non-player, although some may be outstanding in both categories and should receive priority consideration.
USTA Members are encouraged to contact our Hall of Fame committee members to introduce a potential nomination. Our committee members can help with filling out the ONLINE NOMINATION FORM on a potential Hall of Famer's behalf. Applications MUST be received by OCT. 15 of each calendar year to be considered for the current year's Hall of Fame class.
