Our East Campus is an immaculate complex of classrooms, tennis courts and a community center in the heart of Ward 7, just over the Anacostia River from RFK Stadium.
Our West Campus in Northwest is on the grounds of the William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center, which hosts the Citi Open (formerly Legg Mason) tennis tournament that helps benefit the foundation.

WTEF offers beginner to advanced clinics for youth and adults. Our primary programming at our East Campus is for youth who live within District of Columbia underserved communities. We also offer fee-based programming at our West Campus where partial proceeds go towards funding youth programming at our East Campus and our outreach programming at District of Columbia public and charter schools.

WTEF takes special pride in its team of diverse coaches who serve as role models to youth and provide exemplary instruction to youth and adults as well.
