Maynard Receives National USTA Award

The United States Tennis Association has announced that Rex Maynard ’69 of Belton, S.C., has been selected as the recipient of the 2014 USTA Eve F. Kraft Community Service Award.

Maynard will be honored during the annual USTA Tennis Development Workshop (TDW) held Nov. 6-9 at the Sheraton Atlanta.

The USTA awards the Eve F. Kraft Community Service Award to the individual/s who best exemplify Kraft’s selfless mission to bring the sport of tennis to everyone who wants to play.

Maynard runs multiple tennis programs focused on the youth in Belton. These programs impact the lives of more than 600 juniors, and in 2014 will impact some collegiate varsity players as well. From 10 and Under Tennis to the upper ends of junior competition – and now collegiate – Maynard embraces tennis players of all abilities. That includes special populations, with the annual Special Populations Unified Doubles (SPUD) event – a USTA Southern Section event with approximately 50 special athletes competing in teams with unified partners.

Maynard’s daughter, Louise Maynard Todd ’96, was a standout on the Wofford Tennis team during her four years on campus.
