When tennis fans far and near mention tennis and the city of Mobile in the same breath, another name often pops up. The late Newton Cox was an interval, influential part of tennis in the Port City beginning in 1958, when he began as the tennis pro of the Mobile Tennis Center. Mr. Cox was the director of the Mobile Tennis Center since 1965. He began playing tennis when he was a 16 year old at McGill Institute. He coached his alma mater for 13 seasons winning the city championship every year. Mr. Cox taught individuals for several years before being coaxed into taking the job at the newly opened Tennis Center at Mobile Municipal Park. While at the center, Mr. Cox influenced the future of hundreds of junior tennis players, even traveling with them to tournaments. Many of his students achieved state and national rankings. His scope of tennis expanded as Mr. Cox’s eye for detail and organization caught state and sectional tournament committee members’ attention.

Mr. Cox worked in an administrative capacity with every major tennis association in the Southern Association. He served as president of the ATA, STA, the Alabama Professional and Southern Professional tennis associations and vice-president of the USTA Professional Tennis Association. In addition, he served on several committees at various tournaments, including major championships like the U.S. Open and Australian Open. Mr. Cox received more than 20 major awards from tennis organizations.

Mr. Cox was inducted into the McGill Hall of Fame, the Alabama Tennis Hall of Fame and the Southern Tennis Association Hall of Fame. Cox also won the STA Charles B. Morris Jr. Service Award in 1996, the Marlboro Award, the Jacobs Bowl, the T.N. Touchstone, Jr. Memorial Trophy and the Pride of the South.
