a FUN new way to compete!
CONVENIENT. SOCIAL. REWARDING.
Know your hours upfront. Start at 12pm and finish by 3pm. That's it. No more wasted time waiting between matches and weekends lost. We guarantee 3 hours of play, between back draws and Master Pro clinics, even if you lose, you get to keep playing and improving! Plus, all tournaments held at the private and pristine Landon School minutes from downtown Bethesda and 495.
After each Saturday tournament, we encourage players to meet and socialize at the fun downtown Bethesda Piazza Beer Garden. We reserve the table and provide the space and you decide how to party :) There is casual food and drinks of all varieties to purchase. Here is a video to check it out.
We give you something fun to compete for! Players accumulate points throughout the summer by reaching the finals and semi-finals of any given tournament. We keep a running leader board (see below) and the top male and female point earners win a trip to the US Open in August! See here for details of the trip, valued at $295.

WHO IS IT FOR?
These competitions are open to all levels of competitors who understand that to get better at tennis, practice is just not enough. Competition allows players to expand their strategic comprehension, experience different playing styles and get better! Draws are created based on the player's UTR ranking. There is both a back draw for those that lose in the first round, as well as a high-performance clinic that players feed into once they finish the tournament.
