Kids will get plenty more experience either in an introductory setting (Team Challenge) or a more competitive setting (Team Tournament) with our new USTA program in April. Both activities are led by Coach Gina Jasovic of the USTA Northern Illinois District.
Team Challenge is for kids age 14 & under in Developmental JDP, JDP 5, Advanced Beginner, and Intermediate classes. Points of emphasis include teamwork, skill development, level-based competition, and social fun. Team Challenge will meet from 4 - 5:30 pm on Fridays / April 9, 16, 23 & 30.
Team Tournament is similarly constructed, but for more experienced players like JDP 3 & 4 and High School JV & Varsity students. It will meet from 5:30 - 7 pm on Fridays / April 9, 16, 23 & 30.
Only $120 for the 4-week session; register for either program on the USTA website.

Once a year the tennis courts take on a new purpose. Moreover, they take on a whole new neighborhood, one of cardboard forts! We’re talking an epic fort-building battle. We’ll supply sheets of cardboard and duct tape…you do the rest! Prizes will be awarded for best construction, original design and fan favorite. Families or teams of four are encouraged to participate. (Only one team member need register.) Teams should bring additional materials (fabric, cardboard tubes, colored duct tape, stickers, battery powered lights, etc.) to add to their masterpiece. No glue, glitter, paint or other liquids please; check out the list of approved supplies. $20 per team; register online or at the Club.
A great feature of The Racket Club is its partnership with the Herrick-Thomas Memorial Foundation (named after two passionate promoters of community tennis and Racket Club founders). The Foundation awards annual dollars towards lessons to those age 10 - 16 who demonstrate great attitude, dedication, achievement, academics and sportsmanship. School performance, community involvement and financial need are also factored in. Applications are due to Conni Stinek by March 31.
$10/hr Court Rental & No Guest Fees | 10 am - 3 pm, Monday - Friday
