MTG is committed to promoting NYC-based events that are welcoming and supportive of women-identified players of all stripes, including trans, bi+, pan-, queer and lesbian women, as well as players who are gender non-binary, gender non-conforming and/or gender fluid. We also happily welcome our straight allies to our women’s events. Throughout the year, we offer numerous opportunities for social, recreational, and competitive tennis, including women's doubles and mixed doubles events.
In all of our events, we like to keep the emphasis on having fun. That's not to say that we don't want to win — many of us have strong competitive spirits — but we tend to emphasize participation (everyone plays) over competition.
The club membership includes female-identified and gender-fluid players of varying levels, from advanced to just beginning, so you can be sure to find a good match for your abilities. Please send any questions to the board of directors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Benefits for MTG Women
While many women join MTG to participate in our events, we also have many other benefits including:
- Beginners parties: Clinics with club pros, monthly social doubles and other non-competitive events
- Tournaments: Including Marsha Day Club Championship and the Liberty Open
- USTA teams: Playing on a team is a great experience and the fastest way to meet fellow MTG members. Many of our women members participate in the Mixed Doubles Season in the fall. If you have questions or would like to join a team, just send us a message.
- Socializing: Social events such as US Open outings, a holiday party, and a whole new group of friends!
MTG Women Testimonials
"I've been involved with MTG since it started some 25 years ago. I've made many lasting friendships through MTG, both on and off the courts. MTG is very welcoming to tennis players of all levels, from beginners to advanced. The playing parties and summer ladder are a great way to meet people at your own playing level. The tournaments are both fun and competitive. My favorite MTG yearly event is the Liberty Open where players come from all over the country and the world to compete at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Being a member of MTG has been a great experience that I'd recommend to anyone looking for great tennis, having fun and meeting new friends."
— Linda Clark, member since 1993
"Playing tennis in New York City can be tough, but being an MTG member makes it easy to find courts and friendly competition. Each and every event we've attended — from winter leagues to summer tournaments — we've been warmly welcomed on and off the court."
— Arlyn Tobias Gajilan & Robin Winn, members since 1991 and 2010 respectively
