2014 Robinson

57th Annual Francis J. Robinson Memorial International Tournament

August 5-10, 2014

The Francis J. Robinson Memorial International Tournament is named after a local tennis player, Lt. Francis J. Robinson, a young serviceman who died in a military flight training mission in July 1958. A group of Lt. Robinson’s friends started a small tennis tournament in his honor that same summer. The “Robinson” has grown into a local event that has drawn between 200-400 participants annually, ranging in divisions from 10 & under to 65 & over and is considered one of the longest running community tennis tournaments in the United States.

Use the links below for detailed entry information; to view the draws and Semis/Finals’ schedules; and review Robinson Champions, Finalists, and Special Award recipients. This information will be updated as it becomes available.

We are excited to announce new features of this year’s Robinson!

  • Local players may partner with a non-local player in doubles events
  • Doubles semi-finals will be played on Friday
  • Door prizes, player of the day prizes, and awards for best dressed doubles teams – updates on the Events & Activities page!
