Nominations/Selection Process
The USTA Colorado office has nomination forms, which may be sent to anyone interested in nominating a candidate for the Colorado Tennis Hall of Fame.  

  • Any person or group may submit a name for consideration to the Colorado Tennis Hall of Fame. 
  • That name shall remain active for consideration indefinitely. 
  • All nominations must use the Hall of Fame Nominating Form.


Identification of Candidates
Candidates will be nominated at-large by written nomination form and elected on the basis of judgment gained from general public perception of the candidate and the accompanying informational questionnaire, plus any other written information provided by any interested person or group.

The candidate will be judged on:

  • Outstanding contributions to the sport of tennis in Colorado;
  • Tennis playing achievements within Colorado or by a Coloradan outside the state;
  • Achievements in tennis coaching (high schools, college, etc.), or professional instruction of tennis at private or public facilities, within Colorado or by a Coloradan outside the state;
  • Achievements in tennis administration, the umpiring and refereeing of tennis, the reporting and publicizing of tennis, the directing of tennis tournaments or inventive and technological advancements in tennis either within Colorado or by a Coloradan outside the state;
  • Contributions of service to organized tennis including, but not limited to, philanthropic and volunteer activities within Colorado or by a Coloradan outside the state; and
  • Considerations of tenure, maturity and residence; and
  • Considerations of sportsmanship and character will be factors.

Primary emphasis will be on tennis-related accomplishments and service within Colorado and by Coloradans outside the state. Evaluation will be based on local, state, sectional, national and international tennis accomplishments.
