Peter Burwash Inducted into USPTA Hall of Fame

USPTA Professional honored at USPTA World Conference in Indian Wells, Calif.

Peter Burwash joined the ranks of only 18 others when he was inducted into the United States Professional Tennis Association Hall of Fame on Sept. 27 at the USPTA World Conference during the annual awards presentation at Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa in Indian Wells, Calif.


The USPTA Hall of Fame is the association’s highest honor and serves as a place to recognize excellence in the tennis profession and commitment to USPTA, the world’s oldest and largest association of tennis-teaching professionals. The award was renamed in honor of the late Tim Heckler, who served as the CEO of the USPTA for 30 years, from 1982-2012.


Peter Burwash is the founder and president of Peter Burwash International, which for the past 41 years has been the world’s largest tennis management company operating in 32 countries. PBI was named “One of the Ten Best-Managed Companies in America” by author James O’Toole in his book, “Vanguard Management.” He has been a USPTA Master Professional and a USPTA-certified member for more than 40 years,  spoken at numerous conferences and events, and has encouraged the certification of many teaching professionals.


Burwash is a featured international speaker for Fortune 500 companies and devotes his time as a keynote speaker, consultant and seminar specialist giving more than 100 speeches a year. The former Canadian champion and Davis Cup player coached and played in 135 countries.  As a player, he won 19 international singles and doubles titles and competed on the ATP Tour from 1968-74. Burwash has been recognized for many of his accomplishments throughout his successful career as a tennis professional, entrepreneur, speaker, and author, and now as an inductee into the USPTA Hall of Fame.


The USPTA National Awards program is conducted annually. Nominations are submitted by the organization’s 17 divisions and by individuals. Recipients in each category are decided by the USPTA Awards Committee.
