The Richard P. Garmany Tennis & Leadership Award was established in 2011 to honor the late Richard P. Garmany, a long-time recreational tennis player who unselfishly gave his time and energy to promote the sport of tennis. This award recognizes one male and one female Senior Games Tennis Participant who through guidance and by their example have encouraged and inspired others to play tennis, assume leadership roles and provide education to the tennis community. This award is supported by the Richard P. Garmany Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.*
