“The McCarty”


The largest one-day tournament on the east coast in 2017. USTA

THE McCARTY is about honoring the memory of Brian McCarty – son, brother, husband, father and friend, with a day he would love and a cause close to his heart.  A complete day that brings together his family, friends and community having fun around the tennis courts.  Tennis for Brian was about the love of the game, the competition, but most importantly it was about the family and friendships he made through tennis.

Please join us as we plan to pull off the perfect McCARTY2.0 on June 9, 2018!  Help us continue making this tournament the largest one-day tournament on the East Coast by registering today!

All proceeds benefit Commonwealth Autism.
