Har-Tru at the Mubadala Citi DC Open

The Citi Open in Washington, D.C. is combining with the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic to become the Mubadala Citi DC Open. Har-Tru was the official court surface provider for both the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic and the Citi Open in Washington, D.C. 

Har-Tru Sports Coatings will once again cover the courts in Championship Green and Blue as the official playing surface of the tournament.

The Mubadala Citi DC Open is the fifth largest pro tennis event in the United States. It will take place July 29 – August 6, 2023, at the William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center in Rock Creek


The Mubadala Citi DC Open tournament was founded in 1969 to support Arthur Ashe’s vision of playing professional tennis in a public park, making tennis accessible to everyone. The Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic was founded 52 years ago by Billie Jean King as the first event of the 1971 professional women’s tour that has now become the WTA.

The move elevates the women’s event from a WTA 250 level to a WTA 500 level, making the Mubadala Citi DC Open the only combined ATP-WTA 500 tournament on the tour calendar. The tournament will remain a 28-player field and presents a rare opportunity for a combined 500-level event the same week, allowing WTA players to compete in front of a larger audience with a more convenient tour schedule in proximity to the next major WTA events and then the U.S. Open in New York City later that month. Tennis fans, meanwhile, will be able to enjoy the highest levels of men’s and women’s professional tennis during the same week.

Tournament Beneficiary: The Washington Tennis & Education Foundation (WTEF) is a premier educational and tennis organization for underserved children in Washington, D.C.
