Top Junior Players in the Northeast Hit MAC Tennis Courts for Training Camp

This weekend, Manchester Athletic Club welcomed 24 of the most elite junior tennis players across the northeast region of the nation to come together for a two-day, high-intensity camp that focused on player training, character on and off the court, and the roles of players, parents and coaches. This weekend’s camp is one of several of this caliber held at Manchester Athletic Club since the club was named a Regional Training Center by the United States Tennis Association (USTA).

Players born between 2000 and 2002 who display the greatest potential in their age groups were hand-selected by USTA regional player development directors and national coaches to train together for this prestigious two-day session. Many players already have national rankings, with seven of Manchester Athletic Club’s MAC Tennis Academy players in the mix, including: Chris Li of Westford, Sydney Weinberg, Nilos Makino and Julia Thompson of Winchester, Lexi Kubas of Ellington, CT, Grace Campanella of Wells, ME, and Alex Finklestein of Raynham, MA, who took home the USTA Courage Award.

Leading the USTA RTC Camp this weekend were nine USTA Regional Training Center Pros from across New England, as well as the Eastern and Middle States section, including USTA National coach Jay Devashetty of New York and MAC Academy coaches Francisco Montoya, Ricardo Munar and Todd Carpenter.

“Being the only USTA Regional Training Center in New England has brought our program many advantages.” said Todd Carpenter, Director of Tennis at Manchester Athletic Club. “Being able to offer our players the opportunity to play against their peers at the highest level in the country right here at their home training base is certainly one of those advantages.”

MAC players and members of the surrounding community will have another opportunity to watch tennis at its top level when Manchester Athletic Club becomes home to the Boston Lobsters, New England’s professional tennis team, this summer.

Manchester Athletic Club is located in Manchester by-the-Sea, MA, and is one of only 17 USTA regional training centers in the country. The full service health club features 11 tennis courts, the Gymazing! Child Center for preschool-aged children, iXl programs for young teens, a fitness and strength training center staffed with certified professional trainers, indoor aquatics center, multiple group exercise studios, and an outdoor pool with playground.
