Sportsmen's Tennis & Enrichment Center

Mary Long , CEO
950 Blue Hill Avenue
Dorchester, Massachusetts 02124
(617) 288-9092


Sportsmen’s mission is to build leaders on the court, in the classroom and in the greater community by providing academic, wellness and social development programs alongside recreational and competitive tennis instruction for youth and adults. We are committed to improving life opportunities for youth in Boston’s Blue Hill Corridor.

Sportsmen's has invested 60 years in the health and well-being of Boston's inner city neighborhoods. We are a year-round, family centered organization offering tennis, academic and social enrichment programs for K-12 aged youth, adult basic education, financial literacy courses, health and wellness screening and classes. We have successfully provided free and low-cost access to educational and physical activities for the economically disadvantaged youth and families of Dorchester, Mattapan, and Roxbury (Boston’s Blue Hill Corridor). We target low-income Blue Hill Corridor neighborhoods within a 1.5 mile radius of our facility, which are some of the most challenged and under-served areas of Boston.
