Tennis Program

The Western Springs Recreation Department Tennis Program has been under the guidance of Dave Evans, USPTA, since 1983. The program offers quality and affordable tennis programs for all ages—from pee wee to adult, including leagues.  All courts are outdoors, with the main courts in Spring Rock Park. 

Tennis sessions run from May through August. The Summer Brochure, which includes Spring Tennis, is mailed around the second week of March; registration for Spring Tennis will open in March and registration for Summer Tennis begins in April (see exact dates in brochure).  Registration is available online or registration forms can be submitted to the Recreation Dept. If you have any questions or comments regarding the tennis program, please contact Dave Evans at devans@wsprings.com.

Due to tollway construction, the tennis courts at Spring Rock Park have been reconfigured.  The West Courts have been removed and new courts built south of the courts by the playground.  The new courts are now the "South Courts" and the playground courts are now the "North Courts."
