MANCHESTER BY-THE-SEA, MA—September 24, 2019. The tennis program at Manchester Athletic Club raised over $1000 this month with the help of north shore tennis players who participated in a fundraiser to benefit the American Red Cross and those affected by Hurricane Dorian.

In their 3-hour, season-opening tennis event held Friday, September 13, 28 players from the North Shore Tennis League, came together for this fun event to support those whose homes and lives were devastated by the destructive hurricane which hit at the end of this summer. Participants included teammates from the MAC as well as surrounding area clubs.

“It was a great event. The women were able to enjoy a day of tennis that included high-intensity tennis drills followed by competitive matchplay—all while raising money for a cause we all care about. It was a win for everybody,” said Todd Carpenter, who hosted the event along with other tennis staff.

This kicks off a season of fundraising tennis events at the Manchester Athletic Club, which will run its next event on October 11 from 9:00-12:00pm to support breast cancer awareness—marked around the world in October. Fundraising tennis events will be open to both MAC members and guests.
