Close-Up: The Tennis Scene In Washington D.C.

The capital of the United States borders the states of Maryland and Virginia as well as the Potomac River. It’s known for its iconic museums, neoclassical monuments, and performing arts venues – but it’s also home to an active tennis scene. The D.C. Tennis League serves its first volley in March and plays through the fall. Players meet on free public courts available throughout the city. A variety of PlayYourCourt instructors offer adult tennis lessons as well as junior tennis lessons, so you can be sure your game is sharp at the start of the season.

Things really heat up in July and August when the Citi Open comes to town. A weeklong event featuring matches from the world’s top tennis players, the Citi Open gets everyone in the mood to compete. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales at the Citi Open go to the Washington Tennis & Education Foundation, an organization committed to promoting health and wellness for kids in the area through tennis. The Open first began in July of 1969 and was one of the first to be held in the United States.

D.C. residents can exercise their competitive spirit at the East Potomac Tennis Center. The big white bubble at the border of DC and VA, membership isn’t required at the East Potomac Tennis Center – anyone can walk in and reserve a court! But that doesn’t mean East Potomac Tennis Center doesn’t have organized events – the schedule there is jampacked with Social Happy Hours, Tennis Clinics and Tennis Classes. Sign up for some private tennis lessons through PlayYourCourt, or semi-private tennis lessons, to get down the foundations, and then go check out the East Potomac Tennis Center's Adult Group and Early Bird tennis clinics.

Local D.C. players agree that of all the public tennis courts in the area (and there are 217, by the way) Rose Park is a favorite. Rose Park boasts three of DC's best public tennis courts. They were resurfaced in late 2006 so the surfaces are still beautiful and the nets well-maintained. Though there aren't benches there are plenty of donated plastic chairs to watch a match or rest in between games. Plus the grounds surrounding the tennis courts are manicured and there are plenty of trees around them for some shade.

Ultimately, there’s no way you can play in D.C. without making new friends and improving your game – so pick up a racquet and start swinging!
