Tennis League Evanston, IL

Gladiator is currently in its sixth year.  Each year runs for 3 seasons, during spring, summer and fall.  After you sign up, you’ll be choosing your home court from hundreds of public courts in the Chicagoland area.  About half of your games will be played on your home court, with half played on the home courts of your opponents.  Almost always, these courts will be close – about 20 minutes or so from your home court.  Matches are assigned once a week and all 7 matches of the season are played in an 8 week time frame.  When you play your matches is up to you and your opponent.  You’ll decide what day and what time works best for you.
