The 7,500 seat tennis center, also known as Rock Creek Tennis Center, is located at Rock Creek Park, a division of the National Park Service.
Parking is very limited at the tennis center itself, so it is recommended that spectators take Metro to the Van Ness UDC station. Free shuttle service will operate every 10-12 minutes beginning one hour prior to the start of matches and will run until one hour after the last match. You may also park at the Van Ness UDC metro station and ride the free shuttle buses.
The Washington Tennis & Education Foundation is a premier educational and tennis organization for underserved children, providing the best quality instruction, resources, and mentorship to build life champions.
The organization's mission is to keep children off city streets and engage them in productive activities that instill self-pride and discipline. They also provide opportunities for children to obtain academic and athletic scholarships for college. For those not college bound, WTEF offers assistance in joining the work force and making constructive life choices.
