National Tennis Month in New England

As tennis participation surges in the U.S., we're encouraging players and tennis organizations throughout New England to promote May as National Tennis Month—a time to get out on the court and experience the fun, competition and long-term health benefits of the lifetime sport.


We are celebrating by hosting three FREE family community tennis events around the city of Boston. These events are open to everyone and we will have fun activities on and off the court for the whole family. The May 14th and May 21st events will feature wheelchair tennis activities.


Volunteers are needed on-court to run stations (no coaching experience needed) and off-court with our registration/information table. To volunteer, please submit this form. All volunteers must be USTA Safe Play approved. If you need to start or renew your Safe Play certification, please go to With questions, contact Sarah Wishart at
