World Doubles Championship (Real Tennis) at Chicago

Update Apr 14, 2024
Published Feb 21, 2024

The Racquet Club of Chicago will be hosting the World Doubles Championship from April 24th - 28th, 2024.

This event is the culmination of an outstanding renaissance of Real Tennis in our city. After enjoying over 20 years of active play after the club's founding in 1922, the Tennis court went out of use during the Second World War until its restoration in 2012. Since then, Chicago has resumed its place as an enthusiastic member of the Tennis community.

We are honoured that Chicago has been selected to host this event, and we are looking forward to welcoming members from far and wide to our club. If you wish to learn more about attending the event, please submit an email of inquiry to mari@racquetclubchicago.org to learn more about ticket availability or opportunities to subscribe to a patron package.

We look forward to hosting an outstanding week of athletic competition and sportsmanship, camaraderie, and fun.

Warm regards,

The 2024 World Doubles Championship Committee
