About

Record holder among men in terms of the number of titles won in the Polish National Championships - in the years 1958–1970 he triumphed 21 times, including 12 in a row in a single game and twice in all three competitions during one tournament (1962 and 1965). He was the leader or vice-leader of the annual PZT singles ranking for 14 consecutive years (1959–1972, including 10 consecutive seasons in 1st place - it is also an unprecedented achievement, not repeated by anyone). He was also successful in many other national and international events - incl. in 1971 he won the European Championship in doubles with Tadeusz Nowicki; largely for this success, he was awarded the Honorary Badge for Merit of the PZT. He also had the Honorary Badge of the City of Poznań and the titles of Master and Meritorious Master of Sports.
They also played tennis professionally and are now coached by his sons - Jacek (also the current president of Wielkopolska OZT) and Piotr (also a judge and the most outstanding expert in the pre-war history of Polish tennis) and grandson Hubert (2007 Polish junior champion in a mix, with Sylwia Zagórska).
