10. Great Atmosphere! Play good, competitive matches within a fun atmosphere on a supportive team.

9. A Good Deal! GSTEF’s pay-as-you-go style of play allows you to only pay for the matches you play. Our league fees are the lowest, making USTA match play more affordable.

8. No Rainouts! When you play inside at GSRC, there are no worries about rainy days, rescheduling matches, or last minute indoor court scrambling with additional costs.

7. Feel Good About Playing! The USTA league play at GSRC is organized through the Green Spring Tennis and Educational Foundation. This is a 501c(3) charity organization that is offering many wonderful, reasonably priced tennis programs for juniors in our community. GSTEF also works with organizations like Special Olympics of Maryland Camp Honey Bee (an autism camp). Go to to find out more about the GSTEF foundation

6. Climate and Light Controlled! You will be playing in a cool, comfortable, healthy climate with no sun in your eyes or on your skin!

5. Matches in One Location! All matches will be played at Green Spring Racquet Club.

4. Free Internet and TV Access to the Tennis Channel! Access to the GSRC club computer for updated USTA tournament, league play, stats & standing information. Also, GSRC pros are available to help you in determining your USTA rating.

2. Restrooms Always Available! No worries about the location of the closest restroom. Clean and fully stocked for your comfort! Towels and showers if you need to go out after your match.

1. Beer, Wine and Snacks after Play! Enjoy a complimentary bottle of beer, glass of wine, or can of soda while socializing with fellow tennis players after your match in a relaxing club environment.
