USTA  Foundation Advisory Board member Carol Richardson Kimmelman, who received the Foundation’s inaugural National Service Award in November, passed away at her home in Rancho Santa Fe on January 6 following a long illness.

A former teacher, gifted athlete, and mother of four, Kimmelman’s passion was tennis, and her dream was to bring tennis to underserved  youth just like the children she taught at the Raymond Avenue School in South Los Angeles.

To honor Kimmelman’s lifetime dedication to serving others, the Kimmelman family has announced the endowment of the Carol Richardson Kimmelman Tennis Center which will be built and developed in conjunction with the USTA Foundation (USTAF) in Los Angeles.
