Marcus Lewis Tennis Center Inc.
All of it began when tennis professional, Marcus Lewis, returned from playing satellite tennis in tournaments held in Europe and Africa. At the time, tennis in Central Massachusetts was not player-friendly and/or the costs were exorbitant.
Sensing an opportunity to offer something better for a reasonable price, the eponymous business was launched in 1997 and instantly grew to become a three-season operation that provided lessons in the Acton area. Years later, it would grow to operate year-round with multiple satellite programs in Acton, Groton, Stow, Bolton and Harvard with as many as 16 courts contemporaneously being utilized.
The Marcus Lewis Tennis Center now partners with four different towns to provide recreation services and three different school systems to offer QuickStart tennis programs.
