Mercer County Announces Tennis Hall of Fame Class of 2024 Awards Dinner

Mercer County - The Mercer County Park Commission is proud to announce the Mercer County Tennis Hall of Fame Class of 2024. This year’s honorees have made extraordinary achievements in the field of tennis and expanded the popularity of the sport.

The Class of 2024 includes Jim Cryan, Co-Director of the Cryan Memorial Tennis Tournament; Mike Ehrenberg, longtime Director of the G. Nelson Green Memorial Tournament; Ginny Mason, a founding member and continuous supporter of National Junior Tennis and Learning of Trenton (NJTL); Glenn Michibata, a Wimbledon Doubles Semifinalist and Princeton Tennis Program Teaching Professional; and Betty Sander Thompson, who is receiving a posthumous honor and had received a USTA Umpire Emeritus Award for 32 years of service.

The Hall of Fame dinner will be held on Friday, June 14 at 6:00 p.m. at the Boathouse at Mercer Lake in Mercer County Park, West Windsor.

“I’m pleased to announce this year’s Mercer County Tennis Hall of Fame honorees,” said County Executive Dan Benson. “Mercer County produces incredible talent in every field imaginable and I’m always thrilled for an opportunity to highlight the leaders in our community. Thanks to the work of the Mercer County Park Commission, the Mercer County Tennis Center isn’t just a place where people can play the sport, it is a center for the tennis community in our region.”

Marc Vecchiolla, Director of the Mercer County Tennis Center, has been the Hall of Fame Chair for 12 years. Throughout his tenure, he has found each year’s honorees to be incredibly inspirational.

“Their shared love of tennis has made each inductee monumentally influential to thousands within Mercer County and beyond,” said Mr. Vecchiolla. “The Park Commission is proud to recognize the indelible contributions the inductees have made to our tennis community.” 

The Mercer County Tennis Hall of Fame was initiated in 1992 by the Mercer County Tennis Council to recognize people with ties to the County who have made outstanding contributions to the sport. Since the dissolution of the Tennis Council, the Mercer County Park Commission has overseen the nominating committee, voting process and dinner committee. The Hall of Fame honors individuals for their involvement in competition, education, officiating, recreation, media, industry, or in the advancement of tennis. 

Induction ceremonies are held every four years, with the honorees selected by 50 leaders in the area’s tennis community. Criteria for induction stipulate that “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.”

Tickets for the Hall of Fame dinner are $100 per person. For more information or to receive an electronic invitation, please contact Marc Vecchiolla at mvecchiolla@mercercounty.org or by phone at (609) 448-2088.
