COLORADO TENNIS HALL OF FAME
Celebrating Colorado’s Rich Tennis History
The state has had a rich tradition of tennis throughout the years and the Hall of Fame
provides a vehicle for due recognition of Colorado players, coaches or administrators for
their contribution to tennis. The Hall will also seek to provide exposure for the
recipients and for tennis in the state of Colorado. The mission statement of the Colorado
Tennis Hall of Fame is to honor individuals who have made outstanding contributions to
tennis in Colorado.
