Tennis Fans Won’t Want to Miss This Year’s Citi Open
The Washington Tennis and Education Foundation has a long tradition of using tennis as a tool to reach out to young people in the DC area. This group’s signature fundraising event is the annual Citi Open, an ATP and WTA sanctioned tournament held at the William Fitzgerald Tennis Center in Rock Creek Park, and this year’s event, which runs from July 27 to August 4, promises to be among the very best in the tournament’s 50-year history.
Some of the hottest up-and-coming tennis stars in the world are slated to appear, including Gael Monfils, Kei Nishikori, Sloane Stephens, and Bianca Andreescu. When there’s a break in the action, you’ll find plenty to do off the court, including workshops for kids, a beer festival for grown-ups, and a tailgating and picnic area for everyone. Ticket packages (as well as single tickets) can be purchased online.
