NEW: Bob Hewitt Suspended From International Tennis Hall of Fame

Thursday, November 15, 2012

 

The Executive Committee of the International Tennis Hall of Fame has voted to indefinitely suspend South African tennis player Bob Hewitt from the Hall of Fame. Hewitt was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1992. The suspension of Mr. Hewitt follows a comprehensive investigation conducted by Hinckley, Allen & Snyder LLP into multiple allegations brought concerning sexual misconduct involving Mr. Hewitt and minor students that he coached. The investigation was led by Michael Connolly, a former Assistant United States Attorney.

"Serious allegations" against Hewitt

"Suspension of Mr. Hewitt is appropriate given the serious allegations that have been made and the findings presented to our Executive Committee," said Mark Stenning, CEO of the International Tennis Hall of Fame. "After carefully considering the issue, we commissioned a thorough investigation by outside legal counsel. Our Executive Committee considered the findings of the investigation and has voted to suspend Bob Hewitt indefinitely. We feel suspension is the proper course of action on behalf of the Hall of Fame, the women who have made these allegations, and our sport."
