JPVIS TENNIS

The Juniper Point Village Improvement Society (JPVIS) operates 4 charming red clay tennis courts, nestled among trees and cottages a few hundred yards from the ocean. The courts flourish with activities throughout the summer season, bringing the  community together.  

The JPVIS tennis program offers drop-in open play, round robins, private and group lessons, team matches and other social events at the courts.  The courts are typically open from Memorial Day to Columbus Day, and are often the heart of activities throughout the summer.  A Tennis Director and Assistant Director run tennis programs and social activities for all ages from mid-June through August and offer a full service tennis pro shop adjacent to the courts.  The Directors also run weekly ice cream socials and activity nights for the kids.
