27th Annual AFTA Cup Team Tennis Tournament

Our tournament this past May took place at Rock Creek Park Tennis Center, home to the Citi Open tournament and members of Washington Tennis and Education Foundation. Players enjoyed friendly competition, fantastic exhibition play, and on the stadium’s center court with local tennis celebrities and junior tennis players from JTCC. A fun and scrumptious awards party buffet in the hospitality suites followed and we were joined by NBC News 4 Anchor Jim Handly. Much gratitude to AFTA Trustee and event chair Don Wright, and to these top sponsors of the AFTA Cup: Gold – LafargeHolcim; Silver – SunTrust Bank; Ace – ADS Corporation, Creig Northrop Long & Foster, Fidelity Engineering, Gingles LLC, KONTERRA/Gould, Rock Creek Park Tennis Center, Washington Tennis and Education Foundation. Proceeds support AFTA’s award-winning participatory arts workshops for older adults living with health impairments – using creativity to turn isolation, loneliness, and loss into community, access, and joy.  Click here for event photos.
