Second City Tennis announces exciting outdoor tennis line-up

What do you get when you add longer days to warmer temperatures in Chicagoland? Outdoor tennis! Second City Tennis is proud to offer a number of great tennis programs for all skill levels this spring and summer to get you and your friends swinging away on the court. Here is a quick preview:

1. Start/Restart with USTA. We are thrilled to announce a partnership with the US Tennis Association in launching Start/Restart. This dynamic program seeks to provide beginning players and those who haven’t played in the while a fun environment to develop skills quickly and encourage match play. We will run 2-hour clinics for 5-weeks on Saturday afternoons at the Diversey Clay Courts from May 10th to June 7th with an experienced instructor. The $100 program fee (or $75 for current AAC members) includes discounts for other programs later in the year.

2. SCT Team Tennis at Diversey. Based on your feedback, SCT is making a major change to our summer doubles program. To promote community building and friendly competition, we are launching SCT Team Tennis. Each Sunday from June 22nd to September 14th, teams of 6-8 players representing all skill levels will play another team in a format similar to Davis Cup (2 singles matches and 2 doubles matches). Team captains decide weekly line-ups, but must assign the stronger singles player and doubles pairing to the respective #1 spots. Entry fees ($65) are the same as the prior years. We think you’ll love this change.

3. The Chardonnay. The weekend of July 12th, we will host our annual doubles clay court tournament, The Chardonnay. Its a great mix of competitive tennis, beautiful weather, and a barbecue to top it all off. More details to follow.

4. Summer Singles. Our most popular program, Summer Singles, is a ladder of almost 200 players in which you set up matches with players at your skill level. Play starts May 4th and runs through August 17th. It is a great way to meet lots of people and get a ton of matches in. Entry fee is $22.

5. SCT Classic. And just a reminder to take advantage of our early bird rates for what is going to be a spectacular Second City Classic from June 13-15 at amazing facilities at Northwestern University. To sign up, go to the SCT Classic site.
