Closing May 22nd 2021. for the Season.

Outdoor Tennis Season May through October

Get Social with Us.


JTC had a great tournament season in 2021. Here is a summary of the results:

Sept 11 -  Fall scramble

The appreciated beautiful day was started with a remembrance
of a day of infamy we will never forget Sept 11, 2001.

We ended this season with a great fun scramble on 

a perfect weather day.   Tennis play will go on at JTC deep 
into October but the last tournament of our four 
tournament summer was fitting to be a very social and lively
play of doubles matches.
Many thanks to John Tanzman. our Tournament Director who
once again dedicated his day to ensuring the JTC players
have some varied competition and a lot of fun, as he did
for the opening year scramble, the mixed doubles tournament,
the Challenge Cup and the mens womens doubles.
The skillful players of the day who won the final match set
were a nicely matched couple Scott Kaplan and Alena McDonough.
 Taking second place today was a dynamic duo (or trio?) 
 Laurie Gabriel and Alli Hefferan.
By the time the final match was played out our participants
were able to devour 24 burgers and even a few beers.  Thanks
to Joanne Green bringing the salads and others too many
to mention who  brought pasties, brownies and cookies ...all very appreciated.
Yes, after some vigorous play on the courts, comfort food
was a great finish.
The scramble format was a hit and we are sure will continue 
next year on the tournament list.

Aug 14 Mens womens doubles guest tournament

We had another beautiful day and a great turnout for our third tournament of the year. This time it was men's and women's open doubles with 9 women's team and 6 men's team competing. 
The men kicked off the day with two 3 team flights competing in a round robin competition. Joe Twer and John Waldie won their flight and then defeated the other flight winners Bob Yanuck and John Tanzman in the finals. Mark Guerringue and Mike Mallet took third place with a victory over Dave Chaffee and John Russell. 
The women's tournament saw a number of very competitive matches. Flight winners were Alena McDonough and Sue MacIver, Bridget Herlihy and Laurie Gabriel and Carolyn Wachnicki and Judy Teehan. Bridget and Laurie won in the finals over Alena and Sue, while Carolyn and Judy had an amazing comeback against Lorraine Dokas and Diana Doyle to capture third place.
The day got off to a rocky start with the net post on court 1 giving way. Thanks to some ingenuity by Paul Pacenka and John Russell we were able to keep play moving with a truck holding the post up throughout the day. 
Thanks to everyone that participated and helped make this a great day. A number of the players brought food with them and everyone involved seemed to pitch in somehow, support the players and have a great time.
Special thanks to Laurie for offering up her court so we could keep the tournament moving along and to Paul Packenka (with some help from Joe Twer) for taking care of the grill. 

3rd annual mixed doubles vintage tournament

2021 3rd Annual doubles scramble was a crowd pleaser!

With full participation of 24 competitors, our opening season tournament of a mixed doubles
scramble was great fun and had plenty of competitive play by all.  Tournament Director John Tanzman 
set up a great mix of matches.  We witnessed some great games that had the crowd
applauding.  And our tournament tradition of delicious burgers seemed to be the real
draw to this very social JTC event, thanks to grill chef Bill Pruschinski.  
The finals brought on the top four highest point scorers of Bob Yanuck and Anne Pillion versus
Hadley Champlain and Frank Murphy.  It was exciting to see couple Anne and Hadley play 
against each other.  The level of tennis went up a notch.....but "gets everything" Bob and Anne
prevailed as the Scramble Winners for 2021.  Congratulations.
Also presented was Carolyn Wachnicki's beautiful framing of the 1981 water color print of the 
crowd at the Volvo International Tournament, Mt. Cranmore Tennis Club Stadium where Ivan Lendl lost in the finals against Jose-Luis Clerc now on display in the JTC Clubhouse tennis museum.  The print
was donated to JTC by Stan and Dan's Sports North Conway.  Stan and Dans was a sponsor
of the Volvo tournament from 1974 to 1984 and Stan was a linesman at the time.  Stan and Dans
gives JTC members a 20% discount on tennis equipment.

The 2020 covid-19 season of JTC tournaments has come to an end.  Here are the memories:

2020 2nd Annual doubles scramble

On Sunday Sept 13 we had a field of 24 players on a beautiful beginning of fall day.  Everyone played 4 rounds of 4 game sets.  The top 8 in number of games played in a playoff.  
First place team accepting the coveted JTC glass mugs ?were Bridget Herlihy and Diana Doyle. 
The best part was that all players got to play with a different randomly picked doubles
partner for each of the 4 rounds, making for a very fast moving, varied and challenging
tennis and social experience.
Thank you again to John Tanzman for the idea, the coordinating and setting up this 2nd annual 
scramble tournament.   Thanks to the great food providers.... Judy Crofts getting us
morning coffee,  ample delicious burgers with trappings and cookies,  Lorraine Dokas for also amazing cookies,  
Nancy and Bill Watts for crazy good desserts, Paul S. got the beer (yea!),  and OMG Deb White
bringing an awesome chacuterie board.  And of course Paul Pacenka custom cooking
to order the burgers.  Thank you to everyone attending and making it a fun event...the 
tennis watching was as good as playing. 

2020 jtc vs bridgton highlands annual challenge

Congratulations to Bridgton Highlands winning the 4th held Challenge Cup.   
Bridgton took the final two matches this morning thus scoring 6 matches versus Jackson total of 3.  
The last matched played was a womens doubles nail bitter.... Bridgton's Carol Kelley/Mikita Orsoz team
defeated  Jackson's Carolyn Wachnicki / Alena McDonough in a come from behind tie breaker 3rd set 12-10!!
Paul Schuepp passed the Challenge Cup trophy back to Justin Chaffee, Tennis Director of BH, where it will reside until the next Challenge in 2021.  
The 9 matches, 3 womens teams, 3 mens teams and 3 mixed teams, provided very competitive tennis which was exciting to watch.  Spectator turn out and camaraderie was strong from both sides for all matches spread over 4 days due to the rain out when the tournament started last Saturday.
Thank you Bridgton Highlands teams and Justin Chaffee for great competition and fun.  Thanks to the Jackson Tennis Club teams for fierce play and efforts putting on a good show and thanks to John Tanzman for coordination of JTC.
Next year the Challenge will be held at Bridgton.  
JTC will be back!

2020 Vintage Tournament July 25th results..

Our now annual Vintage Tournament was a wonderful JTC event yesterday on a beautiful July day with 12 mixed doubles teams participating. 
The competition was fierce thanks to the pair ups and including a consolation bracket arranged by our tournament committee leader John Tanzman.  
The matches were even more interesting as each player was required to use a vintage wooden racquet for at least one game within each set played.
This years' champions were Bridget Hurlihy and Evan Hurlihy receiving the coveted JTC glass beer mugs.  
Note President Schuepp not shaking hands but rather giving a congratulatory elbow bump.
Almost as much fun as the tennis competition was the gala of vintage and whites fashion
from all teams.  The members were really in the spirit of culture and history that tennis
came from, especially here in the Valley going back to the Cranmore International Volvo
Special recognition was given for classic tennis outfits well done to Scott Kaplan as John McEnroe with 
authentic hair do, Carolyn Wachnicki in classic Sergio Tacchini, John Campbell as Bjorn Borg Fila
outfit using Borg racquet, Judi Crofts with an actual 37 year old beautiful pleated silk Chrissy 
Evert skirt, and Danielle Kastrati in class white elegant dress:
