Second City Tennis offers a co-ed indoor winter doubles league for all ability levels from beginner through advanced.
We apologize for the lateness in communicating about Winter Doubles for this year but we have been in active negotiations with Midtown. Unfortunately due to the new health club and facilities at Midtown and what is being requested by their leadership team, it will not be financially feasible for Winter Doubles to take place at Midtown this year.
Fortunately, Lakeshore Athletic Club in Lincoln Park has offered to host our winter league. But given the limited amount of courts, we will have to limit the total number of teams to 32 total across four divisions. Here are some of the details:
- The regular season will run from Dec. 1 through March 16, with playoffs on March 23 & 24.
- Matches will be played on Fridays from 9-11pm.
- The format will be predefined doubles teams; the “Open Relationship” league which was introduced last year will not be possible this year given the limited amount of courts. We will be happy to help pair people up if you do not have a doubles partner.
- There will be four divisions: Open, A, B, and C.
- With 8 teams per division, there will be 7 matches played per team across 14 weeks.
- All teams will qualify for playoffs which will allow for additional matches played.
- Since there is a limit of 32 total teams, we will have to force rank the entire league to fill the 4 divisions evenly. Rankings will be based primarily on previous results and GLTA/NTRP ratings.
- We will take into consideration your requests for 1st choice of division but we appreciate in advance your flexibility as some decisions will need to be made in order to balance out the divisions and schedule evenly.
- The cost will be $180 per person for full time players and $25 for substitute players.
Since there is an absolute limit of 32 total teams, we encourage you all to register your teams ASAP as space is limited! As always, you are required to have an active AAC annual membership in order to register for Winter Doubles.
Registration is now open and will close on November 20, 2017! Click here to register!

We look forward to another fun winter doubles season and can’t wait to see many of you out on the tennis courts!
