Venus Williams Hits the Tennis Court for a Cause

The Washington Kastles, Venus Williams and Nick Kyrgios serve up fun.


Looking for a courtside seat to summer action? The Washington Kastles are a match made in heaven. Hitting the capital for a July 15 to 29 volley, World TeamTennis presented by GEICO is major league with rising star Yoshihito Nishioka, 23-time Gram Slam winner Venus Williams, quarterfinalist of the 2019 Australian Open and College Park prodigy Frances Tiafoe, and world No. 13 Nick Kyrgios. All are primed to pack the new Kastles Stadium at Union Market to help the franchise seek its seventh title—and we bet they ace it. Even the talent is pumped. “I love playing World TeamTennis,” says Kyrgios, who came as a fan last year even though he was injured. So you have no excuse not to come either. 600 22nd St. NW, D.C.,
