Join us for the 2017 Bernard Master Doubles Classic

This tournament, celebrating its 39th year, honors our great sponsor, Doctor Bernard Master, the Godfather of Central Ohio Tennis. Besides his sponsorship of this tournament, Dr. Master has been a longtime supporter of nearly every major tennis event that has occurred in Central Ohio over the last four decades. In addition to sponsoring adult tennis events, and junior developmental tennis, Bernie has been a major backer of every professional tennis event that has occurred in Central Ohio. If it were not for Bernie Master, with great assistance from Jim Criswell, many kids would not have had the chance to begin playing tennis, or play in their first novice tournament. The Bernard Master Junior Tennis Circuit has helped develop thousands of junior players over the last 30+ years. Everyone in the local tennis world are most appreciative and give great thanks to Bernie for his unfailing support of tennis at all levels.
