  • Citi Open Tennis Tournament - Helping At-Risk Youth Both On and Off the Court

    By John Breaux, Former United States Senator and Vice President of Facilities, Washington Tennis and Education Foundation August 01, 2012 09:00 AM

    Washingtonians have long marked the peak of summer with an annual tennis tournament, drawing high profile players to compete under the sweltering DC sun. We are again in the midst of the Citi Open, which began July 28 and will run through August 4, at the William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center in Rock Creek Park. With Citi taking over as the tournament's title sponsor, we have seen the event grow both on and off the court this year.

    Proceeds from the Citi Open benefit the Washington Tennis and Education Foundation (WTEF), a non-profit organization designed to provide academic enrichment, supplemented by tennis and life skills, to at-risk Washington, DC youth.
