2021 USTA Georgia Award Winners

Every year, USTA Georgia recognizes the outstanding accomplishments made by tennis players, coaches, tournaments directors and other professionals across the state.  While normally recognized in conjunction with our CTDW, due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year's ceremony was held Saturday June 18th at the JW Marriott in Buckhead.  

Special thanks goes to Sam Crenshaw of 92.9 The Game for being our Master of Ceremonies.

Below you'll find the list of award winners for 2021. They were officially recognized at the 2020 CTDW.  Congratulations to all of them on their achievements in tennis across the state of Georgia!  (photos courtesy of Dane Sponberg).
