THE MAN, THE SCHOLARSHIP FUND, AND DONATIONS
About Mal Clarke:
Mal Clarke is a tennis legend who was a 30-year Maine Pines member. Mal was playing tennis three times a week right up until his death at age 96.
At the age of 95, Clarke traveled to Florida to play in the Seniors Tennis Classic Tournament in Orlando, a more social tournament. Every year Clarke would bring from Harpswell a jug of martinis on the plane to his tournament.
As a founding member of Maine Pines in Brunswick, he is remembered by several people as, “A very, very talented guy with a racket. He had quick hands, a terrific half-volley, and an even better drop shot. He also had great court sense, always positioning himself to maximize his chances to put away any ball coming his way.”

The mission of the Mal Clarke Scholarship Fund is to promote and provide opportunity for all youth in the greater Brunswick region with financial need to participate and excel in the sport of tennis by providing support, guidance and funding for instructional, educational and training programs as a means of healthful recreation and physical fitness.
