The Mercer County Tennis Hall of Fame was initiated in 1992 by the Mercer County Tennis Council to recognize persons who have made outstanding contributions to tennis through involvement in competition, education, officiating, recreation, media, industry, or any others who have advanced the cause of tennis. This shall include those who were Mercer County residents or those whose actions had a positive impact upon Mercer County and the game of tennis. The record of achievement must be balanced by a reputation that can be admired and respected. Membership is intended to represent a highly selective group.


The Mercer County Tennis Council shall induct new members every four years. The Council will appoint a Nominating Committee, which is not restricted to members of the Council, who will prepare a slate of candidates complete with biographical information. Any suggestions for nominations must be forwarded to a Nominating Committee member.


A ballot will be prepared by the Nominating Committee. Members of the Nominating Committee, members of the Mercer County Tennis Council, and previously selected inductees are automatic voting members. Additional persons may be invited to vote upon majority approval of the Nominating Committee.

The top four vote getters shall be placed into the Hall of Fame. The Nominating Committee has the right to select a fifth person.

Any exceptions proposed by a member of the Nominating Committee to the above must be approved by two-thirds vote of the Nominating Committee.
