Welcome to the Extended Winter Session!

Hello Tennis players! This year, the Wilmette Tennis Club Spring Session will be an extension of our indoor Winter Session!

Current Students

Each student currently enrolled in a Winter Tennis Class (both basic level and advanced) will automatically be enrolled into our extended Winter Session, which runs into April and through May (spring). Students will be enrolled in their same day and time for the April and May (spring) time period. Once current students have been enrolled in the extension, they will have an opportunity to switch days, times, or even cancel if they wish.

The April/May extension session will be "hybrid;" as soon as weather permits, classes will move to one of our outdoor tennis court locations.

Look for all communication and announcements to come directly from Wilmette Tennis Club.

New Registrants

Space is still available in many of our classes! If you are not currently enrolled in a Winter/Winter Extension Session class and would like to sign up now, please call the tennis front desk at 847/256-9676 and we'll register you to start in the class of your choice immediately, if it has room for new students.

All fees will be appropriately prorated.
