We are so thankful for ALL our VB high school tennis coaches, and we enjoyed some fun time together with coach Murray, coach Ramirez, and coach Suber from Salem High School. Coach Yermal from Kellam even jumped in to feed balls to some of our tennis players!

All good things must come to an end 🙁. After more than 30 years of putting forth their tireless efforts to promote tennis in Virginia Beach, Karen and Jack Tucker are retiring from the Patrons Board. Without a doubt, we will miss them being an active part of our organization, as their contributions to us and the VB tennis community at large cannot be overstated.

Since the late 80s, this dynamic duo has always been there — planning, working, and attending countless VBTPA sponsored events. This included all the Banana Open Tournaments, Guy Rule Tournaments, Patron Play Days, Patrons End of Year Parties, Beach Blast for Special Olympics, & An Achievable Dream (to name a few).

And if that wasn’t enough, Karen has been the coordinator of the VBTPA’s Adult Leagues during her tenure on the Board. It’s remarkable to think about… more than 1,500 tennis players have benefitted from Karen’s hard work season after season. From handling all the organizational aspects of the leagues to settling minor disputes over rain delays, Karen did it all! Plus, you could also spot Karen at the district and sectional matches in Newport News or ODU cheering on all the Virginia Beach teams.

Oh, and did we mention Karen also did our social media?!

The Patrons wish Karen and Jack well in their all future endeavors. They leave the Board with great admiration and appreciation for all they have done to fulfill our mission: growth and development of tennis in the area.

Karen and Jack – we can’t express enough how you will be missed. Thank you both for your dedication to the VBTPA.


We hope that you can make it to 757 Tennis Appreciation Day to celebrate the game, everyone who plays, and the late Darryl Cummings. Admission is FREE!


Wishing you health, joy, peace and love in 2024!


Today is the shortest day of the year! Tomorrow they start getting longer!
