Bill Quillian Stadium
Bill Quillian has long been associated with tennis at the University of Washington, as a player, a coach and a member of the Husky Hall of Fame. His legacy was honored years ago when the University of Washington tennis courts were named in his memory. With renovation, and the possible expansion of Quillian Stadium this year, the Husky tennis teams make their outdoor home on those courts.
Quillian began his stellar tennis career at Washington in 1952 and advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship as a freshman with Don Fly. That duo had won the U.S. National Juniors Championship in 1951. Quillian also earned a berth in the NCAA Singles Championships all four years, finishing runner-up in 1955. He is the only Husky to have represented the United States in the Davis Cup, doing so in 1958.
As coach, Quillian compiled a 63-39 record from 1966 to 1973. His winning percentage of .618 and his win total both rank fourth among all Husky tennis coaches.
