Children’s Group Lessons

We are working to add more group lessons, including children’s group lessons.

Tennis courts are located inside Yates Field House on the campus of Georgetown University.  If you are driving, you can enter campus from Canal Road or Entrance #4 on Reservoir Road. We recommend using the free parking at the Leavey Center Parking Garage. Turn onto the road between Leavey Center and the Hariri Building (Business School) off West Rd – the garage will be signed and to the left. For the first class, we will have a staff member on West Road to help with parking and Yates Field House directions.

Give yourself more time as it is about a 5-minute walk up the hill to the Field House.

Campus Map (new window)

There is no parking in the lot adjacent to Yates Field House; those who park in the lot beside Yates risk a $125 dollar ticket.

We do not offer make-ups for missed group tennis lessons.
