Something really magnificent is in the works!
We're nearing completion on the type of construction project an Egyptian Pharaoh would be proud of: Our new and improved flagship Midtown Chicago club. It's more than tennis.

You will help build the best community in the business, brought together by a love of movement and a desire to give members personal attention. You will create the type of club where membership is a badge of honor.
