Winter Break Is Coming!

No Classes or Leagues, But Still Lots To Do

Bring your holiday guests to The Racket Club!  No non-member daily fees (save $10 per person!) the entire time.  Also, don't miss the annual Walt Herrick Memorial Foundation Men's Open over New Year's weekend...it's some of the best tennis you'll ever see around Chicago!

Flexible Schedule? Here You Go!

An Absolutely, Positively Unbeatable Deal

If your lifestyle features occasional gaps in the schedule that can be filled with a quick session, we don't see how you could do better than this deal!  Add this to your membership for only $25/month, and play as much and often as you like just so long as you don't make a reservation.  (We suggest calling first to make sure there are available courts!)

Coming Attractions

Drop n' Shop Open Gym for the Kiddies

 The Racket Club's got Open Gym Tennis on Friday nights (7-9 pm) and  Saturday afternoons (4-6 pm) for kids in grades 6 thru 12.  This means  you can DROP n' SHOP at those times!  It's only $5 for kids to play at  those times with friends.  Drop 'em off, pick 'em up a couple hours  later, and hit the stores in between!

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.

Think You Can Beat a Pro?

We know some of you are dying to see how you'd do against one of our pros!  Well, you don't have to just wonder -- you can challenge our pros to competitive sets and actually find out where you stand.  It's only $20 per set and any victories will be posted for all to see.  Let the gloating begin!!  Schedule your sets with specific pros or see Rob or Conni if you aren't sure who to play.

$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!
