At our annual Chicago Charity Tennis Clinic, you will enjoy an evening of tennis, food and good company. Players are divided into squads of eight according to skill level, and for two hours, are rotated through a series of drills and instruction led by 40 Chicago tennis professionals. Tennis is followed by a casual dinner, raffle and silent auction.
