MAC Tennis Scholarship

Four $1,000 Scholarships Awarded to High School Seniors in the St. Louis and Kansas City Metros

Since the late 1970s the tennis community in St. Louis and Kansas City has helped turn MAC Sports and recreation surfaces into one of the Midwest’s leading tennis court builders.

We created the MAC Tennis Scholarship to show our appreciation and support of the scholastic tennis community by helping to educate tomorrow’s leaders. We’re proud to continue championing those who share a love of tennis with a scholarship that helps fund their future education.

McConnell & Associates awards one male and one female graduating high school seniors from both the St. Louis and Kansas City Metros with a one-time $1,000.00 scholarship.
