Black Tennis Hall of Fame Congratulates Its Founder, Dr. Dale G. Caldwell As He Is Announced As An Inductee Into The Eastern Tennis Hall of Fame Class of 2021

Tennis Historian, founder of the Black Tennis Hall of Fame, creator and co-curator of the original Breaking the Barriers Exhibit, now hosted at the International Tennis Hall of Fame, and former USTA Eastern President.

Dale Caldwell is the first of this year's six inductees into the Eastern Tennis Hall of Fame to be announced. A new inductee will be announced each week. 


A graduate of Princeton University, Dale has tirelessly promoted the history of Black Tennis in the US. He founded the Black Tennis Hall of Fame, and in 2006, he conceived and conjured Breaking the Barriers – currently on exhibition at the International Tennis Hall of Fame – honoring the American Tennis Association and the Black pioneers of tennis.

 

Along with fellow Hall of Famer Nancy Gill McShea, Dale is the author of Tennis in New York, the History of the Most Influential Sport in the Most Influential City in the World. He has served on the Board of Directors of the USTA and was the first Black president of USTA Eastern.
