USTA Mid-Atlantic and Citi Open are partnering to host Kids’ Day powered by Net Generation on Sunday, July 28 at Rock Creek Park Tennis Center in Washington D.C. from 9:30-11:30 am. Net Generation, official youth tennis of the USTA, gives kids the skills to be great on and off the court and makes it easier than ever for kids to get into tennis.


At Kids’ Day, participants will play tennis games and skill challenges on stadium court at the Citi Open, just like the pros - and all equipment will be provided. Other off-court activities and entertainment will also be available to enjoy. All ages, skill levels, and abilities are welcomed and encouraged to join us for tennis at Citi Open. Pre-Register today to reserve your spot(s) for family fun. 


Not only will there be plenty of opportunities to have fun with tennis, 15-year-old Cori (Coco) Gauff will be joining us this year for Net Generation Kids’ Day too.



“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be in front of American fans in our nation’s capital at the Citi Open,” said Coco Gauff.  “The last few weeks have been amazing and I’m excited about coming to Washington, D.C. to connect with all the fans, especially the young kids, who have been giving me so much support this summer.”


Tickets are required for all to enter this event. All children under the age of 10 are FREE. Anyone over age 10 will be able to purchase a $15 ticket at the Citi Open box office. Please note, this event is subject to risk of weather-related cancellation or postponement.
