Coming Attractions

Annual Junior Club Championship is November 25

Our kids love this classic tournament over Thanksgiving weekend!  We have 12, 15, and 18 & Under divisions for each gender, plus a mixed gender 10 & Under and mixed doubles 18 & Under division.  There's also a consolation bracket for every division so that everyone's guaranteed at least two matches.  $35 entry gets you in plus the always-popular commemorative t-shirt.  Matches begin as early as 10 am on Saturday, November 25 and may continue into Sunday depending on how far one makes it.

Got Shoulder Pain? Learn Why & How on November 18

Face it, if you play tennis long enough the aches and pains are going to happen.  The good thing is, The Racket Club is here to help!  We're teaming up with Diamond Physical Therapy of Algonquin to explore what's causing shoulder pain.  Do you need to worry about your rotator cuff?  Find out at a FREE presentation from 10-11 am in our lounge on Saturday, November 18.  Click here to pre-register.

Cardio is Back!

Back by popular demand is Cardio Tennis, starting Thursday, November 16 from 6 to 7 pm.  The class is a weekly drop-in so it fits the schedules of busy parents, professionals, and those looking for no commitment.  All levels are welcome and get ready for a workout that's FUN.  $15/class; RSVP at the front desk.

$6,000 Walt Herrick, Sr. Memorial Men's Open Coming Soon!

Northern Illinois' Premier Pro Tournament

Coming New Year's Weekend!  The best pro tournament players, teaching pros, college players & high school standouts in the Midwest gather every year to compete for $6,000 in total prize money.  Tournament proceeds go towards tennis instructional scholarships at The Racket Club for deserving young players courtesy of the Walt Herrick Memorial Foundation.  You can help by playing, volunteering at the tournament, or by being a sponsor.  Help the Foundation ensure a bright future for tennis in our area!  Click here for the brochure and here for the registration site.

Be a Sponsor

Want to make a difference in a deserving young person's life?  Donate to the Walt Herrick Memorial Foundation and you will not only help this tournament happen, but you will also be helping the Foundation award tennis instructional scholarships to children in the coming years.  Any amount, no matter how big or how little, makes a difference and is appreciated!  And the Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization, so your contributions are tax deductible.  Click here to view sponsorship levels & benefits.

An Unbelievably Strong Field

The Open attracts all sorts of great players from Chicago, the Midwest, and even the entire globe.  2014 winner Marek Michalička was ranked as high as 235 in the world in 2016, and last year’s winner, Farris Gosea, is a world top 500 player this year.  Half of the Big Ten schools send players and blue chip college recruits from Chicago can’t wait to test themselves against the big boys.  These guys are really good!
