The Arlington Forest Club fields both Girls and Boys Teams in the Junior Divisions of the NVTL.

  • 10 and under

  • 12 and under

  • 14 and under

There is an annual $150 charge PER PLAYER for participating on the AFC juniors tennis teams. This charge helps to cover the cost of the team uniform, league fees, coach's and assistant's salaries, trophies, and refreshments.   Sign-ups are managed through the City Tennis Academy Portal.

 

All 10-and-under players and new players will be evaluated at the first practice. Players will demonstrate serves, backhand strokes, and forehand strokes.

Men's Tennis Team

The Arlington Forest Club fields two teams in the Men's Divisions of the NVTL.

Arlington Forest Men's #1 Tennis Team

The AFC Men's #1 Team competes in the NVTL 7-A division, which consists of some very strong teams from the Northern Virginia area.

Arlington Forest Men's #2 Tennis Team

The AFC Men's #2 team plays in the NVTL 7-C league. Each week, four singles players and three doubles teams will compete.

Which Team Is Best for Me?

If you're an NTRP 4.5 player or above (or a strong 4.0 player), then the #1 team is your choice (NTRP = National Tennis Rating Program). If you're between a 3.5 and 4.0 player, then the #2 team is your best bet.

These are just recommended NTRP levels to let you know the level of competition to expect. They are not requirements to join either team. 

Cost to join the team is $25. This covers NVTL fees, tennis balls, a t-shirt, and refreshments.

 

Men's Team Match Schedule

 

Note:  AFC Men's Tennis Team matches for the 2019 season are played on Saturday mornings beginning on Sat, May 4th.
