Annual MLK Tournament | January 16, 2017

Since 1961, Sportsmen's Tennis & Enrichment Center (formally Sportsmen's Tennis Club) has welcomed youth and families from Boston's most challenged neighborhoods to find strength inside, a slogan that simultaneously speaks to the inner strength of our youth and families and our organizational ability to see and grow that strength. For nearly as long, we have come together on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday to honor his work, his memory and his passion by reflecting on his work and investing in our youth and families.
Our Martin Luther King Jr. Day Tournament and Remembrance will include developmental tennis tournaments for our youngest players in the morning, followed by lunch and a remembrance by The Learning Center(TLC) at Sportsmen's students, and ending with an adult-junior tournament in the afternoon.
