Center for Excellence (CFE)

Our most intensive program, the Center for Excellence (CFE) is designed to help children and youth prepare to achieve.                 self-sufficiency as young adults.  More than 100 students participate in the CFE, meeting at our beautiful East Capitol Campus for three hours a day,   five days a week after school.

Tiny Tennis Tots

Nearly 300 young children, ages 2 to 4, from 16 nearby preschools and child development centers participate in our Tennis Tots program from 10am – 12pm each day. We pick up the children and their teachers in our vans and bring them to our East Capitol Campus in Ward 7, where they play on the six indoor courts.

Arthur Ashe Children's Program

Through the Arthur Ashe Children’s Program (AACP), WTEF enhances the health, safety and academic performance of elementary school students every school year. We provide academic, tennis, and life skills instruction to students after school at 15 schools in Washington, DC’s under-resourced neighborhoods.

West Campus

 The health and safety of youth and their families is our primary focus. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and following CDC and local health department protocols, we are offering tennis instruction programming for small groups weekly starting June 15, 2020. 

Summer Program (East Campus)

For nine weeks between late June and late August, WTEF’s Summer Program provides 150 children and youth with an active, exciting experience in tennis, fitness, and chess at our East Capitol Campus in

Ward 7.
