Hoxie Memorial Award

The late Jean and Jerry Hoxie, through their belief in children and a love for the game of tennis, made Hamtramck and Southeast Michigan one of the tennis capitals of the country from the 1940s to the 1960s.  Their demand for excellence was coupled with their desire to teach good sportsmanship.  Together, they developed more National Champions than any other tennis instructors in the history of tennis in the United States.

The Jean and Jerry Hoxie Memorial Award is given to a junior male and female (high school senior) player in Southeast Michigan, who have made a great contribution to the game of tennis through their good sportmanship and their achievements both on and off the tennis court.

The award recipients are selected by the Southeast Michigan Junior Competition Committee.  If you know of an exemplary Junior player deserving of this prestigious award, please submit a nomination by October 20, 2019.  Nominations must include two additional recommendations from a school teacher, counselor, coach, community leader, etc.
