Tennis Courts

The combination to the tennis courts can be found on the front of your Mews recreation pass.

Location:  Fairlington Mews has two courts:

  • One is by the pool;
  • One on 36th Street near the intersection of 34th Street.

Allowable uses of courts:

  • Courts are for the sole use of Fairlington Mews residents and their guests, as long as the resident is present.
  • Court near pool: tennis and basketball only
  • Court on 36th Street: tennis and pickleball only

Hours:  The courts are open for use from 9 AM to dusk.  The courts are available for year-round use.

  • Bikes, skateboards, roller skates, scooters, and any other toys with wheels are not permitted on the courts.
  • Pets are not permitted on the courts.
  • The courts are available first come, first served.

  • Players must wear athletic shoes on the courts, preferably those designed for basketball, tennis, or pickleball, or something similar that won’t marr the courts’ surfaces.

  • Players must lock the gates and remove all trash when leaving the court.
