Randy Snow among new exhibits coming to Texas Tennis Museum
April 6, 2015
When the Texas Tennis Museum and Hall of Fame unveils its major renovation later this year, part of the new space will be dedicated to the Randy Snow Wheelchair Exhibit.
2001 Texas Tennis Hall of Fame Inductee Randy Snow had a major impact on wheelchair tennis not only in Texas but worldwide. He was instrumental in promoting wheelchair tennis internationally through his camps, motivational speaking and athletic accomplishments. In addition to the Texas Tennis Hall of Fame, Snow has been inducted into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame and the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Snow died in November of 2009 while volunteering at a wheelchair tennis camp in El Salvador.
Visitors will see Snow's wheelchair on display behind a glass rail. The exhibit will include biographical information, photos, and memorabilia. It will also contain information on the origins and rules of wheelchair tennis.
"Randy Snow was a leader in promoting wheelchair tennis as a healthy and active lifestyle choice for persons with disabilities," said Jim Chaffin, secretary-treasurer of the Museum. "Our goal is to honor Randy while educating the public about opportunities for players of all ages and abilities to enjoy the sport of tennis."
The museum renovation is scheduled for completion in October 2015.
