The Mission welcomes teams and individual players to compete in the 20th EDGE Tennis Tournament on Saturday, September 7 at the Northeast Harbor Tennis Club. The Tournament benefits EdGE, the Mission’s signature education program.  

Taking place from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the Tournament is composed of men’s doubles and women’s doubles playing at advanced and intermediate levels with eight-player teams competing throughout the day. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for all registered players. Players can register as a team of eight players or as an individual. An organization, business, or person can also sponsor a team or individual. Single player participants will be assigned to a team by the Tournament directors.

Your gift to the Maine Seacoast Mission makes you part of all we do.

“I’ve been fortunate to be part of this Tournament as both a player and volunteer director for more than a decade,” says Jaime Weir, general manager of John Williams Boat Company and Mission board member. “Each event brings the tennis community together for a great day of fun and competition, all to benefit the kids of the EdGE program.”

Registration for a team of eight is $1,400 and single player registration is $50. An organization, business, or person can also sponsor a team and the committee will assign single player participants. Interested players can contact Development Operations Associate Devin Mack at [email protected] or (207) 801-6010 to register.

Proceeds from the Tournament fund EdGE. The program offers collaborative and innovative afterschool, summer, in-school, and leadership activities to children in seven schools located along Washington County’s Downeast coast. EdGE provides students opportunities to expand their knowledge and experiences through academic and social support, and peer mentoring. Students challenge themselves, engage with their communities, explore the outdoors, and gain social and leadership skills to build personal, career, and post-secondary education aspirations. 

“In EdGE, students can participate in afterschool, summer camp, and in-school programming,” says EdGE Primary Program Director Isaac Marnik, “Since 2002, EdGE has provided new opportunities for children to discover new things and identify their interests.”

The Mission would like to thank its Corporate Sponsors and Corporate Donors for continued support. This year’s supporters include Platinum Sponsors Bar Harbor Bank & Trust and Wyman’s of Maine; Bronze Sponsors First National Bank and Goldman Sachs with Maggie Keohan; Copper Sponsors Machias Savings Bank and Acadia Bike & Coastal Kayaking Tours; and Corporate Donor Front Street Shipyard
