Dear USCTA Members and Friends of Washington Court Tennis:

As many in the game know, Prince’s Court and the Washington court tennis community have been working for years to find a long-term home. We are pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement to build a new court at Westwood Country Club, located in Vienna, Virginia. If successful, this move will secure the long-term future of court tennis in the D.C. area and prevent the loss of one of 10 active tennis courts in the United States.

Westwood was selected after a five-year process that considered over twenty sites. As a successful, member-owned club with first-class golf, tennis, and clubhouse facilities, Westwood is an ideal partner for our club. And with unparalleled viewing for competitive play and a convenient location between Dulles and National airports, we look forward to welcoming visitors and tournament players for many years to come.

But we cannot do it without your help. Due to Westwood’s schedule for other capital improvements, we have only five months—until February 2021—to raise a total of $3.4 million. With full participation from the D.C. membership, and significant support from the Grassi, Martin, and Prince families, we are already 77% of the way to this goal. But we have reached our limits internally, and are now asking for help from the tennis community to raise the remaining $750,000 we need to cross the finish line.
