Professor F D Carpenter Award

Professor Fred Carpenter of the University of Vermont was one of the earliest proponents of organized tennis competition in the Burlington area. Professor Carpenter was Coach of the UVM tennis team for over 25 years and an original founder of the University Tennis Club, predecessor to the Burlington Tennis Club. His interest in the Club’s junior development program led to the establishment of the Professor F.D. Carpenter Award for junior players. Professor Carpenter regularly presented this award into his late eighties. This award is presented annually to the junior member, selected by the Tennis Pro, who best exemplifies the qualities of good sportsmanship.
