They will be officially inducted during the 2022 Lucy Garvin Southern Tennis Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, scheduled for Jan. 15, 2022. At the same ceremony 2021 inductees USTA Chairman of the Board & President Mike McNulty and Susan Sloane, of Lexington Ky., will also be officially inducted. The ceremony is traditionally conducted during the USTA Southern Annual Meeting in Atlanta but was canceled earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Established in 1977 with the induction of Bitsy Grant and Ham Richardson, the Hall of Fame has grown to 114 members. Other notable members include Stan Smith, Chanda Rubin, Roscoe Tanner, Gordon A. Smith, Linda Tuero, Gardner Mulloy and Lucy Garvin. The Southern Tennis Foundation’s website contains information on the hall, inductees and its charitable mission. The hall is in the USTA Southern office in Peachtree Corners, Ga.
