Why Do I Have To Be A Member of The ECTA to Play on a League Team (Shoreline, Park District, etc.)?

The primary reason that league team players need to be members of the ECTA is the issue of liability insurance. Since the ECTA sponsors the league, our association may be legally liable should an accident occur. Insurance that the ECTA carries does not cover non-members

The ECTA also serves as an “agent” for the City of Evanston Parks and Rec. Dept. in managing the scheduling system. The ECTA receives a greatly reduced or “wholesale” price per hour for court reservations which is then passed on through to the various teams.
