Close-Up: The Tennis Scene In Chicago, IL

Don’t let the “Windy City” nickname fool you: Chicago is an awesome tennis town! Whether you like playing in windy conditions or not, Chicago has something to offer every tennis player. With picturesque summers and hundreds of public tennis facilities, it is no wonder the tennis population is active. In fact, the Chicago Park District alone accounts for nearly 130 different tennis facilities! But don’t worry, despite harsh winters, there is no tennis off-season in Chicago. There are dozens of excellent indoor facilities, including one of the largest in the country: The Midtown Athletic Club.

The Midtown Athletic Club was established in 1970 and boasts 16 indoor tennis courts. Recently, these courts started offering a service called PlaySight. PlaySight is a camera and kiosk system that records every game as it is played, offering "line calling, live-streaming, instant multi-angle video replays and detailed statistics about every shot played." Yes, it is that awesome.

Chicago played host in the '80s to a men’s professional tournament called the Chicago Grand Prix. It was played on and indoor carpet court and regularly attracted the best players in the world. John McEnroe won the event multiple times, as did Bjorn Borg. Thirty years later, McEnroe still comes to Chicago as the city now plays host to a PowerShares Series event, featuring Johnny Mac, Jim Courier, James Blake, Andre Agassi, and more.
