Elite/High School Group:

            Vince Pulupa will run WTEF’s Elite/HS Group that is designed for advanced players of all ages through to tournament level players in the Mid-Atlantic region. Each player should have significant playing experience that includes tournament experience and/or high school team competition. The program is specifically for the serious junior tennis player who wants to excel, not only in the coming years, but wants to potentially compete in college tennis too.  This program will feature players who are in the 12s, 14s, 16s and 18s, and the diverse group will give every player the chance to compete at or above his/her level in competition.

            The Elite Tennis and High School Group is offered on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 4:30 to 7 p.m., and Sundays from 1 to 3 p.m.  Mondays and Sundays will be exclusive Elite Tennis and High School Group practices.  Pricing is $1,200 per day selected.

 Young Elite Group (Invite-Only):

            Mike Kennedy will run WTEF’s Young Elite Group which is “Invite-Only” by Vince Pulupa. Because this is a specific program on Saturdays from 1 to 3 p.m., spaces are extremely limited and age/ability is a heavy factor in who will be invited into the program.
