Junior tennis is going strong on the island. Most, if not all of this action takes place at Vineyard Youth Tennis on Barnes Rd. The facility teaches over 150 children per week and over 250 in the summer time. Although mostly recreational players make up the participants, a Tournament Team is very well represented in off island tournaments throughout New England.
