Airport Fitness and Tennis hosted the first annual Island Cup on Sunday, March 19. The Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School boys and girls teams played against adult tennis players at Airport Fitness and Tennis the day before they began practice for the high school spring season.

The competition included five matches: three mixed doubles pairings, one men’s doubles, and one women’s doubles. Airport Fitness and Tennis club won the best of five matches by a score of 3-2. The adults won the men’s doubles and two of the mixed doubles matches. The adults will keep the Island Cup trophy until the challenge match next year.
