Rose Park Tennis Courts

The families of the Peters Sisters, Friends of Rose Park, DC Department of Parks & Recreation, and the City of Washington, DC are proud to name the Rose Park Tennis Courts after the Peters Sisters who grew up in this neighborhood on O Street, NW. The sisters wowed the crowds wherever they went, playing their doubles tennis from the 1940s through the 1950s. Both were recruited to play tennis at Tuskegee University and continued their tennis careers on the American Tennis Association circuit, winning 14 doubles championships over the years. Roumania Peters Walker defeated Althea Gibson in 1946 at Wilberforce, Ohio, to win her second ATA women's singles championship. Our community is proud to honor and remember the legacy of these pioneering African-American women from our neighborhood.This plaque was generously donated by the Honorable Jeh Johnson and Dr. Susan DiMarco, along with their children, Jeh and Natalie.
