The Academy

WTEF offers tennis programming for youth and adults with a priority on serving youth within underserved communities. We offer programming at two locations as well as outreach programming at over 10 schools within Washington, DC. Programming includes Tiny Tots and Development and Performance for youth ages 4 to 18.

Adult programming includes private/group lessons, adult drill classes, adult singles ladder, cardio tennis and beginner round-robin just to name a few.

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 to 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 to 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.
