Outdoor Court Reservations 

May 24 to August 30, 2014

  • Residents may reserve outdoor courts by calling 847-256-9676 up to 25 hours in advance. Reservations for 8 a.m. will be taken 24 hours in advance. Reservations for 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. courts at Gillson Park will be taken at 6 p.m. Same day reservations cannot be taken because court reservations are posted at each court by 8 a.m. daily.
  • Non-residents may play on open courts or by "racking-up."
  • When making reservations by telephone, please give your name, phone number and name of one other player in your group.
