Draney: International Hall of Famer

Rick Draney, of Utah, was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame this year. As featured in the Summer 2023 issue of ITFWorld online magazine,

Draney is a pioneer of the quad division of wheelchair tennis. The American earned 12 singles and six doubles ties at the Super Series level, before wheelchair tennis's inclusion in Grand Slam tournaments. Draney spent a combined 591 weeks in the doubles and singles top 10.

"I am proud of the many opportunities I had to share what I had learned and developed with other quadriplegics so they could participate in play," said Draney.

USTA Utah is honored to claim Rick Draney as a leader in our tennis community and celebrates his accomplishments in growing the game of tennis.
