Michael Stulac to be Inducted into American Platform Tennis Hall of Fame
December 9, 2018
The American Platform Tennis Association (APTA) is pleased to announce that Michael Stulac will be inducted into it’s Hall of Fame. This is the APTA’s highest honor, bestowed only on individuals who have had the greatest achievements in playing platform tennis or the growth and development of the sport.
Stulac has consistently achieved excellence over his 30-year platform tennis career. He has also been a true ambassador and an outstanding leader in growing the sport in Toronto and Canada, where he grew up, and in New York and New Jersey, where he lives now. Stulac is the first Canadian to be inducted into the APTA Hall of Fame.
Stulac’s many on-court achievements include winning the National Juniors in 1989, the Men’s Doubles National Championships twice, in 2005 and 2011 (with Bill Anderson and Mark Parsons), the Mixed Nationals in 2008 (with his wife, Kerri Delmonico), and four National 45+ Championships (three with Scott Estes, Jr., and one with Jeffrey Morneau).
Off the court, Stulac has garnered many accolades for giving so much back to the game. He was a leader in Canadian platform tennis, growing the Kingsway Platform Tennis Club with his parents and brothers. He was a long-time member and Chair of the Rules Committee and served a long tenure on the Men’s Ranking Committee. Recently, he stood in the rain for four hours umpiring three consecutive Junior National Championship matches. His outstanding character, integrity, and sportsmanship qualify him as one of the finest sportsmen to ever play the game.
The American Platform Tennis Association is a non-profit organization that governs the sport for its 17,000 members, which includes individuals, municipalities, clubs and leagues. The APTA sanctions more than 180 annual tournaments, including 26 National Championship events.
