If your Lafayette student wasn’t lucky enough to get into the Flex Enrichment Tennis Classes – Monday through Thursday 3:30-4:30, Lafayette Tennis is offering additional tennis classes at 4:30 and 5:30 throughout the week.Even though the LAT tennis classes already started on September 3rd you can sign up your tennis player and get a prorated fee.  The classes are for beginner, advanced beginner and intermediate tennis players ranging in age from 5 (4+) to 15.  Anyone living in the general area can sign up for these classes.  Go to to see when the different types of classes are available.   We can collect your child from CLS and take them to the tennis class. or

 Lafayette ES parents will have to create new accounts for the LAT program.  Much of the information is similar to the Flex registration.  This will speed up the registration and payment process.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Paul Rosenbaum at 202 441-0925 or .

 There are also tennis classes for adults in the mornings right after you drop off your kids at Lafayette or at 6:30PM in the evening after a long day of work.  Go to to register for those classes also.
