History

The Vineyard Youth Tennis Foundation began in 1997 by providing free tennis lessons in the West Tisbury and Oak Bluffs Schools. VYT then purchased 12 acres of land at the “blinker light” and built 4 clay courts, a back board and a clubhouse. The four Har-tru courts were opened for play on July 22, 2002. Daily instruction began in the summer
months of July and August, serving an average of 250 children weekly. An inflatable bubble was erected over two courts during the winter months so the children could improve their skills without interruption.

The Clubhouse is a beautiful Vineyard style building designed by Charles Sullivan, with interior design by Twanette Tharp. It contains boys and girls locker rooms and bathrooms, a reception area, a media room, offices and a viewing deck for tennis looking out over two courts. All of VYT’s capital and operating expenses have been met by private donations.
