league advertises the season dates and builds a queue of
committed players for the season.
The start day of the season, players are sent a
kickoff email that contains important information about the
league, the link where your league standings and players contact information. We
guarantee 6 playing partners at your playing level, but have been averaging closer to 15+
partners in most cities. The number of different levels we run is solely based upon the number of players enrolled for the league kickoff. Typically we are running a Skilled-3.0, Competitive-3.5 and Advanced-4.0 in most cities.

Totally fun to play with such a variety of talented people!! Will definitely do this again next year! Thanks, ChiTown!
After this kickoff email is sent,
it is the player's task to communicate with other players.
Players should work with their partners to find an agreeable time
and location to play the match. While ChiTownTennis doesn't
mandate your playing schedule, it is recommended that players
schedule at least one match per week. By request of the players, we started to allow players to play 1 rematch per season.
The regular season is all about playing as much as you can. As of Aug. 25th, 2014 we've had 293 players play more than 20 matches in a season.
Where to Play?
Play at your local free tennis courts, tennis parks, condo courts or tennis clubs. The
league strongly suggests that
players jointly try to pick a tennis court location convenient to
both. We provide an extensive list of tennis courts, including
# of courts, lighting, hitting walls, etc. We strive
to keep this list up-to-date.
ChiTownTennis sets up a must play dates to push players out on the courts. The final deadline
is the date marking the end of the season, at which point players
with 3-5 wins (Actually total is specified on the division page) will qualify for a post-season playoff to determine the
Match #1 to be completed by This is an Example Schedule

Has to be the best option in Chicago for getting a lot of matches with a lot different opponents (and playing styles) throughout the year.
Each season concludes with a playoffs where players with anywhere from 3 to 5 season wins qualifies for a single elimination tourney.
The champion is awarded based upon the league Prize Pool. Each singles league champion also receives a playing entry into the
National Tourney which is already scheduled for Crandon Park Tennis Center in Key Biscayne - Nov. 1-3, 2013.
Full price is $34.95 to play in a season, BUT the earlier you sign up we typically offer discounts during these tougher economic times. Just go to the
the short form. We'd be happy to find you dedicated tennis playing
