Sean Sloane Wins USPTA George Bacso Lifetime Achievement Award

LAS VEGAS - The United States Professional Tennis Association held its Awards Lunch this past week during the 2019 USPTA World Conference presented by Havana Bob’s at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. Sean Sloane of Glassboro, N.J., was presented with the George Bacso Lifetime Achievement Award.

The George Bacso Lifetime Achievement Award is named for the late George Bacso, who was a USPTA Master Professional and was instrumental in developing the current USPTA certification process. Sloane coached tennis and squash at Williams College in Massachusetts and at Haverford College in Pennsylvania for almost 40 years. In his 17 years at Williams in the 1970s and 80s, Sloane coached seven All-Americas and won 12 Little Three championships. Sloane joined Haverford in 1997 and coached men’s tennis for 21 years and men’s and women’s squash until the end of the 2009 season.

Sloane was named USPTA Middle States Coach of the Year following both the 2009 and 2016 seasons. Since 1981, the College Squash Association has recognized the men’s team that best exemplifies sportsmanship, and in 2005, the CSA renamed the award after him.
