It's Official!

October 7 is officially Washington Kastles Day.

Washington, DC– October 7, 2008 — The Council of the District of Columbia, with the great support of Councilman Jack Evans, in whose ward Kastles Stadium sits, has declared October 7, 2008 to be “Washington Kastles Day.” The Kastles and owner Mark Win will be honored as “living monuments to professionalism, teamwork, caring and community service, according to the Council’s resolution.

The Council goes on to salute the Kastles organization for its dedication, passion and persevering spirit in advancing sporting excellence in D.C. and elevating our city to prominence in professional tennis.

The Washington Kastles, who became the 11th World TeamTennis franchise in 2008, enjoyed a highly successful inaugural season in the heart of the nation’s capitol. The Kastles completed their inaugural WTT campaign with a 6-8 record after finishing up with a 22-17 overtime win over the St. Louis Aces on July 23rd. Team owner Mark Ein and the Kastles would first like to thank all Kastles fans, sponsors and the community at large for embracing the team as passionately as they have this season.

“This was the very epitome of a team effort”, said Ein. “We couldn’t have done this without each and every single fan who came out to cheer us on, every sponsor who supported us and the greater DC community who gave us the opportunity to thrive.”
