Last weekend we had some Masters players out in the field playing some great tennis and posting impressive results.

At age 14, Dylan Fayerman is cutting deeper into the 16U age division with a big L5 win down in Providence, Rhode Island. In his first match, he dropped just two games. In his second, only 1. With a much tougher final to play, he had to come from behind in both sets, but managed to close things out with a 6-4, 6-4 win.

Another 14 year-old with an impressive showing is Maya Muhunthan. Maya was playing in Manchester, MA, in a 14U L4 event. Although nearly every match was close, Maya fought hard and the results speak for themselves.

Both of these players have been training consistently with Coach Hattersley giving them the tools they need to succeed. Great job both of you and congratulations on another win!

One of the younger players with great talent!! Casper Ruud was rock solid on Thursday as he knocked out sixth seed Fabio Fognini 6-3, 6-3 in 67 minutes for a place in the Hamburg European Open semi-finals.

[09/23/20]   Hello MLTC Members,

Once again it's that time to put up our West dome!

We would love to have 5 individuals come out to help this Friday, 9/24, starting at noon for between 2-3 hours. We could also use about 25 people to assist with the bulk of the work that happens on Saturday from 8AM to around 2PM (it could go a little longer or wrap up slightly sooner). In return we are offering a membership to the MLTC for the 2020/2021 season. If you help us on one day, we will give a West membership. Help for two and we'll upgrade it to an MLTC East membership that entitles you to access both facilities! If a membership is not for you, then we pay $15/hr. Any high schooler or college person over the age of 16 is welcome to join in (yes, we do take 14 & 15 year-olds, but they need to be strong). The work is physical, so you are guaranteed to burn your fair share of calories on that day :-).

If you are available and would like to help on either day, please respond by replying to this email or by emailing [email protected].

An MLTC Masters player we have not seen for some time is Maya Muhunthan.

Maya was on a tear a year ago as she had just turned 13 and was posting impressive wins in the 14's. By January she was trying her hand at the 16's and even managed to pull off a tournament win in that age bracket. Unfortunately a knee issue sidelined her for a few months, but some rest combined with PT got her back in the saddle.

This past weekend she entered a 16's L5 and was not seeded, but nonetheless played some great tennis to walk away as the victor. It required two tough 3-setters in her last two matches which made it all the more rewarding.

Welcome back, Maya, and great job!

The last few weeks of camp had some great weather, great campers and great tennis! Hard to believe it's over, but still plenty of memories to share 🎾

Update: This holiday weekend MLTC East will be closed Sunday and Monday indoors. The outdoor courts are available for bookings

MLTC East will be closed on Labor Day Sept. 7th. The outdoor courts are available for bookings. We hope you have a nice holiday.

The last time we checked in with Marti Sarquella, he had won an L6 tournament and was told by his coach that he could only play the more difficult L5’s or higher. At the end of August he followed through with an L5 in Connecticut and only gave up a handful of games! When this guy puts his mind to the challenge, he is definitely tough to stop.

A week later we had another player, Melanie Chang, competing in Andover, also in a 12U event. It was her first time playing on clay, but that did not affect her in the least. After only giving up two games in three matches, she easily took home the gold.

Congratulations Marti & Melanie on a job well done!

The future stars of the MLTC program being put through their paces in a warm-up with coaches Carmen & Jamie at camp. 💪

Today we find ourselves posting about two top MLTC Masters juniors who are back on the tournament scene as if they had never left.

Magic Marti Sarquella played in Wayland back on July 29th and did his usual Magic Marti thing. Three matches played with only 2 games lost. It was an L6 event, so going forward his coach has told him it’s either L5’s or you play in the 14’s. Stay challenged!

Speaking of 14’s, Dylan Fayerman was busy last weekend in Manchester doing his Dylan thing of hitting hard and heavy against the wolves who wanted to knock off the top dog. Dylan was the top seed and had lost the first set in his first round match only to come back and win in the 3rd. After making it through two more competitive battles, his opponent in the finals likewise took the first set, but Dylan again fought back to win in another 3rd set fantastic finish.

Congrats to both of these great players! All of their hard work at camp with Coach John Hattersley has been a big help!

ATC is geared toward players in our JTP/Masters Program and those players who play on their high school teams or are looking to play on their high school team.

Our Story

At the Marcus Lewis Tennis Center, we truly believe that tennis is for everyone. Whether younger or older, beginner or advanced, rich or not-so-rich, we are here to serve “everyone.”

Service In our modern world, it is amazing how far technology has come yet we often shake our heads at the poor service we typically receive. A professional approach towards customers appears as though it should be common sense, however this is seldom the case. Whether it is returning a phone call within a 24-hour period or following up on a client’s request, this should always take top priority. At our facility, it does.

Technique Development With regard to tennis instruction, players are looking for guidance from instructors with the experience and knowledge to help them further their game. It is also very easy to receive inaccurate information that will hinder a player’s progress and prevent them from achieving their goals. As many players have experienced, instruction from tennis pros at the same facility does not always equate to consistent information.

All instructors at The MLTC have been tutored under a uniform system so that the information players receive is accurate. The techniques employed by our pros are exceptionally effective at giving players both an understanding of their strokes as well as the ability to execute them.

Facilities The hub for MLTC programs is in Acton where we have not one, but TWO tennis clubs.

MLTC East is the primary facility with 6 permanent indoor hard courts and four outdoor hard courts. The building features state-of-the-art LED illumination, stellar court-viewing and a small function room for team events and parties. The environment is kept clean through constant maintenance.

Located just four minutes away is MLTC West which boast the nicest hard courts in the area and they are protected from the winter elements under a seasonal dome. Likewise, lighting is next-generation LED technology that provide phenomenal illumination across the four courts. The West courts are the only courts in the area that are painted in the style of the Miami and Dubai open using the purple/green color scheme that offer the best visual contrast to the human eye. The paint was more expensive than the common options, but it was worth it.

Technology Tennis and athletic clubs are often notorious for moving slowly with the times; however the MLTC is always using the latest technology to create the most advanced environment possible:

  • Players are able to register for their membership and book their courts directly online. No need to spend time calling the front desk! All programs can also be paid through a convenient club account via credit card.

  • The MLTC helped develop the cutting edge court recording video platform of PlayViewTennis. This is a training feature that can accelerate anyone’s learning ability exponentially.

  • Members of MLTC East have access to our Playmate Deuce ball machine. The Deuce is one of the most sophisticated and powerful machines on the market with variable programming, 90MPH ball feeding and remote on/off.

  • Both MLTC clubs are under 24/7 real-time video surveillance for your safety.

  • Extremely popular multi-divisional leagues are run using the Universal Tennis Rating system platform (UTR) that has become the standard at every premium tennis club and academy in the world. The MLTC currently has the second-highest UTR membership of any club in New England! Click here to read more if you are not familiar with UTR.
  • Junior Tennis If you are looking for an environment where your children can train, regardless of whether they are beginners or nationally ranked juniors, you may wish to read an open letter from the owner, Marcus Lewis, describing his background and the development of the junior program here at the MLTC.

    After only a few years of having indoor courts starting in 2013, the program was posting its first USTA junior champions. Although such quick results were impressive to some, it was another day at the office to the staff. A number of MLTC instructors have had both domestic and international acclaim spanning decades for their teaching prowess and their student successes. Some MLTC instructors have become masters of specific disciplines while others draw from their experience of having played professionally. We recommend that parents visit our staff page and view the backgrounds of our pros. Combining a staff of that caliber with the resources of a 14-court enterprise, the MLTC provides an unparalleled training environment for even the most dedicated players.

    Visit our page on junior lessons to see what we can offer to an 8 year-old beginner who wants to learn the game or to an 18 year-old high school star who thinks he/she has what it takes to eventually earn ATP points.

    Adult Tennis For our adult clientele, the MLTC has countless programs to choose from:

  • Mixed gender singles flex leagues

  • Weekday women’s morning DBH doubles team league play

  • Weekend men’s/women’s CMITA singles/doubles league play

  • Weeknight men’s/women’s USTA singles/doubles league play

  • In-house “Challenger Series” doubles leagues

  • Friday night mixed doubles

  • Instructional clinics

  • Private lessons
  • Whether adult or junior, beginner or advanced, the MLTC is truly the place for EVERYONE.
