  • What is Miami Mavericks Tennis?

    Miami Mavericks Tennis  (MMT) is a non-profit tennis organization that offers organized tennis activities and social events to enhance tennis play in the Miami, Florida area.  We are guided by a group of member volunteers (our elected Board of Directors) who keep the activities and events running and keep the members informed.  We call upon all members to join in organizing the events, as will as participating in them.  Our goal is to bring together a “tennis playing” community of LGBT individuals.  We also welcome non-LGBT individuals to participate in our events and enjoy what we have to offer.
