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 juniors and seniors. Students from Texas are invited to submit a 500-word essay. Work will be judged on the basis of originality, quality of research and writing. 


The scholarships are open to students currently enrolled as a junior or senior at a Texas high school
(Graduating classes of 2020-2021).


Winning scholarship recipients (3) will be recognized and receive funds towards college tuition and expenses. Scholarships will be awarded for the top three essays in the following amounts:

  • 1st place $500

  • 2nd place $250

  • 3rd place $150


The application deadline has passed. The winners were announced here. Thank you to all of our participants. 


The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted the Texas tennis community as we have been advised not to play the sport we love. Explore another time or circumstance in history when tennis players were unable to participate in the sport. Some examples include: The Great Depression, World War I and II, Vietnam and times of segregation and gender inequality. How do the restrictions of the pandemic help you to relate? Please try and incorporate Texas-specific data.


A scholarship selection committee will choose three (3) scholarship winners. 


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

  • All applicants must be high school juniors or seniors, 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.
