The Village of Shoreham has a rich tradition of community-wide participation in many sports, none moreso than tennis, which dates back to the earliest days of the Village. In addition to recreational tennis for all ages, tennis lessons and intra-community tournaments and championship cups, the annual Labor Day weekend Shoreham-Wading River tournament, dating back to 1924, is renowed as one of the oldest, uninterrupted inter-community competition of its type.

This page has links to excellent histories of Shoreham tennis and results through the years thanks to JOHN BATES, Shoreham's "Dean of Tennis", and one of its winningest tennis champs through the decades.
