Net Generation Play Zone at the Citi Open

It’s the summer of TENNIS! Well, hey, if it has to be the summer of something, why not tennis?!

In the spirit of our newly proclaimed “summer of tennis,” we have a whole week of fun ready for you at the 2017 Citi Open professional tennis tournament held at Rock Creek Park Tennis Center in Washington DC. Not only can you watch some amazing men’s and women’s players while on site, but you can also join USTA Mid-Atlantic in the Net Generation Play Zone and get in on the action yourself.

All tournament long, come say hi to us at the USTA Mid-Atlantic Net Generation booth located in front of the the Net Generation Play Zone. We have extra special gifts for USTA members; super cool giveaways for kids; a chance to spin the “Wheel O’ Tennis Prizes” for more swag; and a fun coloring craft perfect for hot days.

We also have this slew of on-court events for you to join in on…
