About Martha’s Vineyard Community Tennis

USTA Tennis Comes to Martha’s Vineyard

Welcome to Martha’s Vineyard Community Tennis

Tennis is booming on the Vineyard! While it has always been a popular summer activity, tennis has taken off in the past decade as a year round sport. Since then, courts are always in use and tournaments are held year round. Women’s and men’s leagues of all abilities bring out hundreds of players each spring and fall, and children’s tennis programs have doubled in size, assuring a growing tennis population for years to come.

To keep this enthusiasm alive and assist players of all abilities in enjoying tennis, a new association has been formed. A group of island tennis players and professionals established Martha’s Vineyard Community Tennis, or MVCT. Approved by the United States Tennis Association (USTA), MVCT is an officially sponsored Community Tennis Association.

The goal of MVCT is to promote and develop tennis on Marthaʼs Vineyard through a variety of programs and services. MVCT will provide information to the public regarding tennis leagues, tournaments, clinics, court locations, tennis pros and their club affiliations, and exhibition matches.  We have also established the first island Tennis Directory!

The founding members of MVCT are: Nina Bramhall, Adam Bresnick, John Cahill, Tony Omer, Penny Franklin, Kelly Hess, Mas Kimball, Lorne Lewis, Sarah Moore, Doreen Rezendes, and Scott Smith.
