Camp contact is Roy Wimbush, head coach of the Edison girls' tennis team: Edison HS, 5801 Franconia Rd, Alexandria, VA 22310. Our six tennis courts are located at the back of the campus on the Van Dorn Street side.

It would be great to have some Tigers on the courts where they might be playing as Eagles someday soon!
