Show your support for youth tennis throughout metropolitan Chicago, and join the Chicago Tennis Patrons for our 30th Annual Evening of Champions Awards Banquet & Fundraiser. This year’s event will be held at the new XS Tennis Village, 5336 S. State St., Chicago — one of the Midwest’s premier facilities. If you haven’t seen this championship indoor and outdoor venue (host of World Team Tennis and the Oracle Challenger Series), you won’t want to miss this opportunity. The evening gets underway at 5:30 with guided tours provided by XS staff and junior players, followed by cocktails at 6 pm and dinner at 7pm. 

“College Tennis Today” – Panel with top college coaches

Immediately following dinner, we’ll host a lively panel discussion, “College Tennis Today,” covering top issues facing collegiate tennis at both the D1 & D3 levels for men and women. The panel includes Claire Pollard, Head Women’s Tennis Coach for Northwestern; Patrick Fisher, Head Men’s Coach for NIU; Roger Follmer, Head Men’s Coach for Washington University; and Erik Scanlan, Head Men’s & Women’s Coach for IIT.

This leads up to the presentation of awards to the players, coaches, officials and organizations who distinguished themselves in 2018. The evening culminates with the induction of Julia Steel and LaMont Bryant as the newest members  of the Chicago Tennis Hall of Fame.
