The Legends Walk

WHO'S A LEGEND IN YOUR MIND?

On The Legends Walk at the International Tennis Hall of Fame, you’ll notice bricks are engraved with names like Stan Smith, Billie Jean King, Arthur Ashe, and other tennis superstars. But you’ll also see names you don’t recognize. These are mothers, fathers, coaches, coworkers and more who’ve made a lasting impression and impact on their loved ones and friends. By placing a brick on The Legends Walk at the Hall of Fame, you too can honor someone special in your life with this unique and permanent tribute.

The Legends Walk provides a unique opportunity to pay tribute to someone's love of the sport or impact on their community at a place where tennis is celebrated daily.

Brenner Brick Dedication

"It is most fitting to honor George H. Brenner with four bricks on The Legends Walk at the International Tennis Hall of Fame. "Georgie" was a U.S. Marine, a U.S. Naval Officer, a true gentleman, and a warm and honest friend to all he met. But it was his devotion to the Aquidneck Island tennis community and his genuine interest in growing tennis in Newport that set him apart.

George was the first one on the courts and the last one to leave, never leaving behind a man that wanted to play. He will be lovingly remembered as a great man with a smile on his face, a skip in his step, and a racquet in his hand."
