Maureen Connolly Brinker
Tennis Foundation of Kansas
Who We Are
At MCB Kansas, we know that sometimes all it takes to change a life is a ball sport, healthy competition, and a little encouragement!
Since our founding in 1975, we have been determined to make a positive impact in the greater Wichita community by supporting youth tennis & sports programs.
MCB Tennis Foundation of Kansas was created in honor of the legendary tennis player, Maureen Connolly Brinker (also known as “Little Mo” or “Mo Connolly”), with a mission to promote healthy lifestyles and character growth of the youth through tennis and sports programs.
Whether on or off the court, Maureen (“Little Mo”) exemplified character traits of competitiveness, kindness & humility - traits that MCB strives to continue with their programs.
Last year despite the pandemic, MCB Kansas helped a record-breaking 2,000 kids in Wichita experience a tennis program, and additionally thousands were exposed to tennis through the NetGen school program!
Please consider attending our weekend annual fundraising event (party & tournament) the weekend of April 22 – 24, to support more tennis programs in the future!
"There is nothing like competition.
It teaches you early in life to win and lose;
and when you lose, to put your chin out instead of dropping it."
