SC Tennis Hall of Fame Museum

Tennis has a proud history in South Carolina and much of this history can be found at the Hall of Fame Museum.

Establishing a state Hall of Fame was the idea of Mr. Jim Russell, South Carolina Tennis Association President in 1983 & 1984. The South Carolina Tennis Hall of Fame was dedicated June 6th, 1984, and is now considered one of the best such facilities in the country. Operating funds are received through contribution as well as various fund raising projects.

The Hall of Fame Museum includes pictures, memorabilia and information about the SC Hall of Fame inductees. The focal point of the museum is the inductees' portrait gallery. These portraits were painted by Mr. Wayland Moore, a Belton native, and one of the country's best known sports artists. He now lives in Atlanta.
