Champions of Tennis 2008
Help us recognize the people who are making a difference in the business of tennis.
Once again, we’d like to honor the champions of our sport—the many, often unheralded heroes who work tirelessly to develop tennis in the U.S. But once again, we need your help in identifying these men and women and how their accomplishments have helped the game, whether in their local areas or nationally.
Please take a look at the categories below and email your nominations to RSI@racquettech.com (please put “Champions” in the subject line). Include:
- Nominee’s name;
- Where they work or what they do related to tennis;
- Phone or email (if possible);
- Brief description of why you believe they are the champions in their areas.
We’d also appreciate your name and contact information, for confirmation purposes only. All nominations will be confidential, and you may nominate for as many categories as you’d like. And, if there’s a category that we don’t list that you think we should include, please let us know.
We need your nominations by Aug. 5, 2008. Email is preferred, but you may fax them to 760-536-1171 or mail them to: Racquet Sports Industry, 330 Main St., Vista, CA 92084.
In our November/December issue, we’ll include a special section acknowledging the dedication of those who work to keep tennis vital in the U.S.
