The Evanston Golf Club tennis program offers adult and junior programs, personalized group and private lessons, and events throughout the season for players of all ages and skill levels. Members have fun, stay active and improve their game as they work with our dedicated and experienced professionals.
The racquet sports facilities include six clay tennis courts, four paddle courts, and the pro shop, which offers a full range of tennis equipment and apparel including racquets, balls, grips, stringing and clothing.
