Exclusive Rings for Extraordinary Legends

They’ve collected gold medals, silver plates, crystal goblets, and the most coveted trophies in tennis. Now, an elite group of tennis players and contributors are being presented with a unique and valuable new item to round out their awards. In 2010, the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum has launched a multi-year program to present Hall of Famers with a commemorative ring to mark their achievement of Hall of Fame induction.

The rings have been generously underwritten by the Bruce T. Halle family of Scottsdale, Ariz., owners of Discount Tire, dedicated philanthropists, and tennis enthusiasts. The personalized rings bear a green stone set in gold, to complement the Hall of Fame’s brand colors. In addition, the rings are etched with each honoree’s name and the Hall of Fame logo crest. With the kind support of the ATP World Tour and the WTA, the International Tennis Hall of Fame has begun to make presentations to Hall of Famers at tournaments and other tennis events around the world, and will continue to do so over the next several years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Induction to the International Tennis Hall of Fame is the highest honor that a tennis player can receive. We are pleased to be able to recognize this achievement with this special ring, which only the best tennis players and contributors in the world will have the honor of wearing,” said Christopher E. Clouser, chairman of the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum. “We would like to thank the Halle family for showing their love for the game by making this program possible. In addition, we are grateful to our partners at the ATP World Tour and WTA, who have supported the program by incorporating these ring presentations into tennis tournaments around the world. The presentations are a great chance to honor the legends and also provide a special experience for the fans to enjoy.”

Presently, there are 85 Hall of Famers residing in 16 different countries, a testament to the global reach of the game. Ring presentations have already occurred in Newport; Delray Beach, Fla.; Houston; and Barcelona. Additional presentations are scheduled for Buenos Aires, Montecarlo, and Washington, D.C., among other cities.
