Texas Tennis Museum



The Texas Tennis Museum and Hall of Fame Educational Scholarships have been established to recognize and provide educational assistance to high school seniors. Students from Texas are invited to submit a 500-word essay. Work will be judged on the basis of originality, quality of detail and writing. ​


The scholarships are open to Texas high school students graduating in 2023.


Winning scholarship recipients will be recognized and receive funds towards college tuition and expenses. Scholarships will be awarded for the following amounts:

  • 1st place $500

  • 2nd place $250

  • 3rd place $150

  • Honorable Mention $100


The 2023 contest has closed. Winners will be announced by June 1. 


Tennis has enjoyed a giant uptick in participation, growing 33% since the beginning of 2020—that’s an additional 5.9 million players!  The sport has such a rich history, including so many outstanding individuals who have been inducted into the Texas Tennis Hall of Fame (click here to explore these individuals). For this year’s essay contest, we are again inviting you to select one of the Texas Tennis Hall of Fame members and write about how they inspire you to play tennis.  Perhaps it is someone familiar to you—whether by family relation, shared home town, college affiliation—or someone you are just learning about!  In what way to you feel connected to the Hall of Fame member and their story? Please be as specific as possible.


A scholarship selection committee will choose four (4) scholarship winners. 


  • All entries must be received by the contest deadline to be considered. 

  • All applicants must have been/be high school seniors during the 2022-2023 school year, residing in the State of Texas. 

  • Entries must follow the contest guidelines in terms of length and adherence to theme/topic.

  • All entries must be the original work of the entrant.

  • Essays become the property of TTMHOF and may be used in print, digital and web-based promotional materials.

  • The judging and selection process is at the sole discretion of TTMHOF and the selection committee chosen for such purpose.
