Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Award

Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Award

The Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Award honors an exceptional company that shares Joe Cullman's enthusiasm for tennis and has also made a significant contribution to society at large - both philanthropically and through outstanding generosity of spirit. Cullman served as President and Chairman of the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum from 1982-88, a tenure during which the organization was elevated to worldwide recognition. He hoped that visits to the historic site would inspire young people to play tennis, learn and appreciate its history, and honor the great players of the past. The award is presented annually at The Legends Ball.
