New Players

Welcome! The Arlington County Tennis Association is a community based non-profit organization dedicated to promoting tennis within Arlington, Virginia.

ACTA’s activities include:

  • Find a match
    “Looking for a game?” is a free community bulletin board to help players find other players wanting to play
  • Doubles leagues
    ACTA runs four coed skill based divisions of mixed doubles. Skill levels include 3.5 through 5.0 roughly following the USTA’s NTRP scale.  The leagues are active in the spring and fall. If you would like to join a team, go to Looking for a team and leave your contact information

    In parallel with the doubles league, ACTA runs casual Round Robin doubles matches.  Although there is no skill requirement, the group is comprised of mostly 3.0 and 3.5 players.
  • Singles ladders
    ACTA runs COED, Women’s and mixed doubles challenge ladders
  • Tennis socials
    ACTA sponsors a number of tennis socials throughout the year
  • Tennis tournaments
    ACTA holds a doubles tournament in the spring and a singles tournament in the fall. All proceeds from both tournaments go to local charities.
