The action will be fast and furious as youngsters from neighborhoods throughout the city compete from August 1 to 5 in the 21st Annual Mayor’s Cup Tennis Tournament sponsored by P&G Gillette at the Sportsmen's Tennis and Enrichment Center at Harambee Park, 950 Blue Hill Avenue, Dorchester.
Boston’s summer tennis programs and City-owned courts enable young people to master the game in their own neighborhoods. Eligible Boston residents must pre-register for the tournament by July 26 at 5 p.m. Participants must be ages 6 to18 as of August 5.
Singles, doubles and quick start competitions will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. throughout the week according to age groups including 8 and under, 10 and under, 12 and under, 14 and under, 16 and under, and 18 and under.
This year’s tournament is presented by the Boston Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with Tenacity and the Sportsmen's Tennis and Enrichment Center with additional support from the MBTA Roll-On T-Pass Program. Participating athletes will receive an official Mayor’s Cup Tennis Tournament t-shirt and winners and finalists will receive tournament trophies.
