TopNotch Tennis strives to make a positive impact and fulfill the needs of our communities through the great sport of tennis by providing a fun, healthy, positive on and off court experience.
TopNotch Tennis is one of the largest and most successful outdoor tennis programs in the McLean, Arlington, and Falls Church area. We strive to create a fun, yet competitive tennis environment that is conducive to learning this great life-long sport! This environment is created by our great coaches that are truly passionate about teaching tennis and working with kids and adults of all ages and skill levels.
One of our most important goals is to create an on court experience that our participants truly enjoy and will want to continue playing tennis for years to come! Tennis is a wonderful life-long sport that children and adults can learn and enjoy over the years. In addition to teaching tennis, we also encourage our Junior Program participants to learn sportsmanship and life-skills. These valuable skills learned can be applied throughout life.

OUR CORE VALUES
Our teaching philosophy and the way we communicate with each participant is what sets us apart from other tennis programs in Northern Virginia. R.O.L.E. is an acronym we developed to summarize our teaching style, which stands for: relationships, optimism, leadership, and energy. During our time with the kids, we strive to develop positive relationships and share optimism with them on the court. We utilize team drills and group play to create opportunities for participants to exercise their leadership skills. We also make use of fun games and group activities to create a high energy and competitive learning environment that keep kids engaged.
Relationships: We strive to develop strong, positive relationships with our students, fostering an environment conducive to learning. Coaches are leaders of their camp groups and a professional distinction is required between coach and students. We are committed to superior tennis training and the long-term progress of each student’s tennis development.
Optimism: We provide an optimistic learning environment that motivates each student to grow as a tennis player. We communicate optimism with each of our students through encouragement, care, and constructive feedback.
Leadership: Our coaches identify the strengths and weaknesses of their students so they can create opportunities for students to exercise leadership skills. We design team drills, group play, and competitive environments to build leadership abilities.
Energy: We make use of fun games and team activities to create a high-energy learning environment that keep students engaged.
