ORLANDO – Steve Wilkinson, Nick Bollettieri and Vic Braden joined the ranks of only 13 others when they were inducted into the United States Professional Tennis Association’s Hall of Fame on Sept. 27 at the USPTA World Conference during the annual awards presentation at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando.

Wilkinson of St. Peter, was the head men’s coach at Gustavus Adolphus College for 39 years from 1971-2009 and is the winningest coach in the history of men’s collegiate tennis with 923 victories. He has coached 46 players to 87 all-American honors (including current ATP tour player Eric Butorac). He founded the Tennis and Life clinics/camps more than 25 years ago and has dedicated his time and effort to improving tennis performance of youth and adults while teaching life lessons that can be used off the court. He has been a USPTA member since 1972.
