Joan Wulfson Awarded Prestigious 2002 Gardner Ward Chase Memorial Award

The prestigious USA Tennis New England Gardner Ward Chase Memorial Award for 2002 will be presented to Joan Wulfson at a ceremony at the Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, RI on June 7, 2003.

The award is presented to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to tennis in New England.

Joan has been a driving force (at times the only force) in USA Tennis Vermont from its early beginnings until now. She served as Chair of the organization for more than 10 years. She relinquished that duty about a year ago to become a Vice-President of USA Tennis New England, however she still serves as Secretary/Treasurer.

One of Joan’s major contributions to tennis in New England has been her role as Coordinator of USA League Tennis in Vermont. She has served enthusiastically and unselfishly in this capacity since its inception more than 15 years ago. Under Joan’s leadership USA League Tennis has flourished in Vermont.
