Second City Tennis (SCT) organizes tennis programs and related social activities serving the LGBTQ+ community of Chicago. We began our association with the Athletic Alliance of Chicago in 2013.
SCT has been offering tennis programs since 1987 and formed its first Board of Directors in 1998.
Second City Tennis was founded by a small group of LGBT tennis enthusiasts. Our mission is to create and support competitive and social tennis programs for the LGBTQ and allied communities and promote unity among our membership. Now at almost 1,000 members, SCT organizes a variety of programs including beginner clinics, winter indoor doubles leagues, a summer singles ladder, and the Second City Tennis Classic, the largest tournament in the region sanctioned by the Gay & Lesbian Tennis Association.
