We offer the largest non-commercial tennis program in the Metro area, featuring a year-round program of indoor and outdoor social playing events, instructional tennis, and weekend getaways. An indoor Tennis Instructional Program runs September through May. We offer over 2,000 playing spots of one kind or another, and maintain a tennis ratings database of over 2,800 players.
Indoor Tennis Parties are conducted nearly every Saturday night at tennis clubs in Virginia and Maryland from September to May. These are social events with three 40-minute (2 hours) of mixed and same-sex doubles play, and include a light buffet and beverages. Non-member "guests" as well as members are welcome. Advance reservations are highly recommended. Attendance is usually 60 to 80 players, divided between men and women in the late 20's to 60's age range. Skill levels range from low intermediate (USTA 3.0 equivalent) who have consistent serves and ground strokes, to advanced players who serve and hit their strokes with pace, excellent control and consistency (USTA 5.0 equivalent). At party, players will be rated by a USPTA pro or experienced player.
Outdoor Tennis Tuesday "drop-in and play" doubles are held at Wakefield Park, Annandale, VA in March to November, 5 PM to 7 PM, followed by a visit to a local pub.
Tennis Getaways are typically offered in the spring and fall to tennis-oriented resorts such as Hilton Head Island, SC, Sea Colony Tennis Resort, Bethany Beach, DE, and various Club Med villages in the Caribbean. Other destinations may also be scheduled based on expressed interest. Our next Tennis Getaway is to the Club Med Columbus Isle resort in February, 2017.
Sunday Instructional Tennis is a program for members to receive instruction from a tennis professional and play for two hours in the same social 4-6 person tennis group every two weeks on Sundays at Fairfax Racquet Club, Fairfax, VA. Members are welcome to put together their own foursome of players, or apply as a single player to join a group.
