Ink Tennis Trophy Winners: Top row: Franklin Mitchell, Leigh Hay, Maureen Connolly, Dick Doss. Bottom row: Alberto Hernandez, Denise Bradshaw, Patsy Zellmer, Powell Blakenship. In 1935 Harper Ink, Sr. (1888-1953) started the Harper Ink Memorial Tennis Tournament to support and assist young tennis players financially. Losers were allowed to keep the balls, and the trophies came from Tiffany's. Harper Ink's contribution to San Diego tennis renews itself every year with the Ink Tournament which is now played at the Barnes Tennis Center.
