What we're about

Are you someone who likes playing tennis and having an awesome time in general? Then this group is for you! We play singles and doubles tennis, both socially and competitively! When we're not playing tennis, we love organizing other activities such as happy hours, hiking, get togethers, and other urban and outdoor adventures in general! Sound like a good time? Then join in on the fun, and help us come up with new ways to enjoy our time here in the great location that is Washington DC!
