Inducted into the USTA New England Tennis Hall of Fame in 2013, Smith’s name has been prominent in the national senior circuit for nearly four decades. Smith, who won a gold ball in 75 doubles at the USTA National Senior Women’s Grass Court Championships in 2012, has earned no.1 rankings in women’s doubles and mixed doubles in several age categories since the 1980’s. In New England, Smith has been ranked first overall in senior women’s doubles and continues to represent the region in national tournaments. Smith has also garnered many accolades as a high school coach leading the Newton South High School women’s squad to a state championship in 1976 among other distinctions.
