The Gene Scott Trophy honors the relationship Gene forged with the USIC and the Bahamas, as Gene helped form the Bahamas IC back in the mid-1980's, when Gene was also hosting the prestigious Marlboro Cup event at the Ocean Club.

Gene Scott was a tennis icon; he touched the game in every possible way - as a Davis Cup player and a Senior World Champion, as an advocate who tirelessly challenged the game\'s status quo, and as founder and publisher of Tennis Week magazine, where he never stopped working at promoting the enjoyment of the game for all. Gene\'s highest US ranking as an amateur was No. 4 in 1963, and he reached as high as No. 11 in the World rankings in 1965. He was a member of the USTA board of directors from 1995-1996, president of the US International Lawn Tennis Club from 1976 to 1998, and he was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame posthumously in 2008.
