    Tuesday Rock Creek Team Tennis, 7-9:30pm

    This is a 5-week mini-league (9/19 - 10/17 or 10/24) played in the World Team Tennis format. Teams will consist of 5 players across all skill divisions to be formed by a draft process from team captains. Teams will face each other weekly in a round-robin format, and then advance to a semifinals and finals.

    There is no upfront cost for registration. While earlier registration will grant you priority into this league, it does not guarantee you a spot as we need to first ensure we have enough players across all skill divisions.

    If you are granted a spot in this league, you will be entered into the draft process. The draft will occur in early September and you will be notified if you have a slot or if you are on the waitlist.  When you are assigned into your team, you will need to reimburse your team captain for the cost of the league, which should run from anywhere from $25-$55 per person depending on how many teams and players register.

    Sunday Hains Point Doubles, 5-7pm (lower-level) & 7-9pm (higher-level)

    This 15-week league (9/24/17-1/21/18) can be purchased in packages of 2, 4, 6, 8, and 12-week sessions.

    For the Fall 2017 league, the lower-level players each week based on level and stats will play from 5-7pm, while the higher-level players will play from 7-9pm.  This will swap for the Winter 2017 league, when higher-level players will play from 5-7pm and lower-level players from 7-9pm.  Each year, CTA alternates which group plays in the Winter 5-7pm slot, the slot most affected by the cherry blossoms (in Fall 2016, the higher-ranked players played from 5-7pm).

    Beginning August 31st, players will have one week to submit play and off-date requests through the stats and scheduling database, until 6:59pm EST on September 6th.  We will attempt to accommodate all preferences but cannot guarantee particular play dates.  We also will attempt to schedule together similar skill levels to minimize mismatches. The league schedules will be released by September 8th.

    Learn to play tennis and enjoy this sport of a lifetime!

    CTA’s Tennis Basics Program is designed for the novice to play and develop skills at the same time. Whether you are brand new to tennis, haven’t played in decades or are an entry-level player that needs to focus on technique – this program is for you!

    The program utilizes lower compression tennis balls that bounce slower for guaranteed racquet contact and will be run by certified teaching professionals.

    During the 6 week program participants will progress from the orange tennis ball to green tennis ball and learn how to:

    • Hit Ground Strokes (forehand and backhand)
    • Serve
    • Volley
    • Hit Lobs and Overheads
    • Score

    Tennis Basics is FREE to CTA Members in good standing that can identify with one of the types of players below:

    • Players just starting to play tennis
    • Players with limited experience and still working primarily on getting the ball into play
    • Players that lack directional intent, have incomplete swings, incomplete service motion, avoid forehand or backhand, and/or have grip problems.
    • Some players whose form is still developing and are prepared for moderately paced shots, may have preparation problems, and can keep the ball in play, but are inconsistent

    Unsure if you fit the requirements, but want to participate? Please email president@capital-tennis.org for consideration.

    Not a CTA Member? Join today to participate in this great program!

    If you have any questions, please contact president@capital-tennis.org.

    Since this is a progression based program, it is encouraged that you only sign-up if you can attend at least 5 (out of 6) of the weeks so that you don't fall behind.


    Please note that the CTA President and CTA League Commissioner have final approval of the participation list for the sole purpose of ensuring that all participants are of appropriate skill level and CTA members in good standing.
