The Kastles Stadium at The Wharf was a tennis stadium on the Southwest Waterfront in Washington, D.C.[1] Built in 2011, the stadium was the home venue for the Washington Kastles tennis team. The stadium was opened on June 14, 2011, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Billie Jean King, Ilana Kloss, District of Columbia mayor Vincent Gray, and others.[2] The Kastles opened their 2011 season on July 5 at the stadium playing against the Kansas City Explorers.[3]

Following the Kastles' 2013 season, the stadium was closed to make way for the redevelopment of Washington's waterfront area.[4] The Kastles moved to the Charles E. Smith Center for the 2014 season.
