The Sacramento Capitals were a team in World Team Tennis.

The Capitals have won six championships, including four straight from 1997 to 2000. The other titles came in 2002 and 2007.

For the 2012 World Team Tennis season, the team returned to play its home matches at Capitals Stadium at Sunrise Mall. In previous years, they called the following venues home: The Westfield Galleria at Roseville, Gold River Racket Club in Gold River, and the original ARCO Arena in the Natomas area.

Move to Las Vegas[edit]

On February 4, 2014, the Capitals, after 28 seasons in Sacramento, announced their move to Las Vegas. The team was renamed the Las Vegas Neon.[1] The new Las Vegas team was shut down a few weeks later, before it even started after owner Deepal Wannakuwatte was arrested for running a Ponzi scheme.
