Our Mission is to build a strong, active & engaging Chicago Tennis Community

We strive to create a fun organization, with a focus on growth, and inclusivity of all players and all levels. We continue to focus on improving the existing league, developing new formats for players to come together with increased playing opportunities. Our hope is to give back to the community by finding ways to improved playing conditions around the city.

Over 75 Years of playing.....

The CPDTA has a long standing history in the Chicago tennis community. For over 75 years the league system has been in-place, offering its members a friendly, competitive atmosphere. 

Men's & Women's Divisions

The Women’s division plays on Saturday mornings and the Men’s on Sundays mornings. The members enjoy that the league is outdoors in beautiful parks around the city, on a consistent day and time each week. The summer league sign-ups are in April. Math play runs through out the summer, concluding with the championships at the end of August.

Get involved

There are lots of opportunities to help grow the organization. 

There are currently 5 committees: Park Relations, Events, Rules, Regulations & Constitution, Communications & Marketing and Membership.
