    I could hit, but singles only, early mornings (before 9am) or maybe around lunch time. But Humboldt Park is not good for me, perhaps courts next to mcfetridge (Irving Park/California)

    Looks like everybody is busy playing tennis outside this summer :D I've been playing in Arlignton Heights, IL/Forest View club.

    anyone still monitoring this thread?

    its been nice this past week and unfortunately i haven't been able to hit much. anyone out there want to hit next week? i have been to this thread before but i will repeat that i am about a 4.5-5.0, played college, and used to be a teaching pro.

    they took the nets down at the courts near me (arlington heights/mount prospect) but i am sure there are some around that are still up. i know park ridge never takes theirs down. i haven't been out to schaumburg much, but i am sure there are some out there as well. i also hit at river trails from time to time.

    any takers? i'm dying to hit.

    Six posts this year. Says something about the state of tennis in this area. October was beautiful and I barely played. I didn't play at all during this most recent stretch of nice weather. That was the last good opportunity this year, most likely. Now it's mooch of my friends with indoor membership season.:-?

    I play at the River Trails off of Algonquin Rd. Prices have gone up though $20/hour between 10pm-12am only on Fridays but there are no guest/nonmember fees. If that doesn't work I usually play at Schaumburg (Tennis Plus) or at Hanover Park (center court).

    I'm in the Chicago area, mid-3.0 and getting to a 3.5 by summer. I'm a member of a club in Aurora or would be interested in playing once summer comes.

    Do you guys still hit outdoor these days? It's a little cooler now but that shouldnt curb the passion right?

    Yes, I drove by Pioneer park yesterday about 6pm. Beautiful courts. No one was playing though. Are you hitting today or next week when it gets back up in the 70s?

    I suck now because of the winter and not able to play too much. But I'm up for a good hit. I'm a 4.0 player the last time I was ranked. I live in the city.

    Wheaton is not too far from me :)
    I usually play in North Aurora, IL after 8pm at the intersection of Route 34 and Eola Rd.
    Sometimes I play in Naperville or Elgin depending on what I am doing that day.
