Miami, Florida – February 21, 2019 – Since 2000, Tennis Industry magazine has presented their annual “Champions of Tennis” awards, celebrating individuals and organizations that go above & beyond in helping to make a difference in the Tennis industry. Tennis Plaza is proud to be chosen as “Specialty Retailer of the Year” for 2018. Tennis Plaza is recognized for being a long-standing business that, according to Tennis Industry’s Editor, Cynthia Sherman, “is virtually synonymous with tennis in Florida. Each store supports local tennis events, area clubs and pros.”

Partnering with his brother Felipe in 1990, owner Leon Echevarria and his team have seen their business grow from a single 850-sq-ft store to eight locations around Florida. Through continuous excellence they became the official racquet retailer for Nasdaq and receive plaudits from customers large & small for their dedication to person-to-person interaction within their 8 stores. With more than 28 years of serving the Florida tennis community, Tennis Plaza has grown from being simply a pillar of local business into an important and engaged community partner, collaborating with major tennis events such as:

• The Miami Open at Crandon Park as the Official Racquet Retailer since 2003.
• The All Island Tennis Tournament in Key Biscayne.
• The Junior Orange Bowl in the Miami area.
• The African American Tennis Tournament in Orlando.
• The SGI USTA level 7 Junior Open.

Tennis Plaza also believes in making a positive difference in the tennis community which includes:

• Partnering with the Maria Sharapova Foundation
• Sponsoring the Children’s Cancer Fund
• Servicing the local community clubs by repairing broken & outdated equipment

By constantly keeping their focus on the Florida tennis community, Tennis Plaza has been able to expand and grow together with that community for almost 30 years.

Tennis Plaza is excited to receive this honor alongside other industry luminaries such as Larry Ellison, Co-Founder of Oracle; Kevin Heim, Wheelchair Tennis Champion; & Doug Cash, Industry Service Leader.

Founded in 1990, Tennis Plaza is one of the largest most reputable tennis stores in the country with 8 locations in the Florida area.
