  • 10 and under
  • 12 and under

There is an annual $225 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 forms on the new system are coming shortly.

Adult Tennis Team

The Arlington Forest Club fields two teams in the Adult Divisions of the NVTL.

Arlington Forest Adult #1 Tennis Team

The AFC Adult #1 Team competes in the NVTL 8-A division, which consists of some very strong teams from the Northern Virginia area.

Arlington Forest Adult #2 Tennis Team

The AFC Adult #2 team plays in the NVTL 8-C league. Each week, two 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.  Sign-ups will be available shortly.
