Events

The ECTA hosts five tennis events a year: the Spring Doubles Round Robin, the Fourth of July Tournament, the Fall (Singles and Double) Tournament, the Thanksgiving Doubles Scramble, and the Winter Doubles Scramble. Our events are not USTA-sanctioned, so a USTA membership is not required for you to participate, and entrants may come from any city or state. Join the ECTA for the opportunity to participate!


Thinking of You This Holiday Season

This time last fall, we were making final preparations for our Thanksgiving Round Robin, which traditionally takes place the Saturday after Turkey Day at Northwestern University’s Combe Tennis Center.

A Message for ECTA Members and Players

Spring may have sprung, but for most tennis enthusiasts, playing is not possible during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
