South Dakota Tennis Achievement Award

 

This award was started in 1997 by the SD Tennis Hall of Fame steering committee–to recognize tennis achievements by families, individuals, tennis teams or tennis communities. Its purpose is to inspire future growth of tennis by looking back in state tennis history, recognizing distinguished levels of contributions that impacted the sport in South Dakota. Nominations for future awards should be submitted to the SD Tennis Hall of Fame committee.
