2018 Evening of Champions

The Chicago Tennis Patrons held its 29th Annual Evening of Champions banquet, fundraiser, and Hall of Fame induction on Saturday, February 17 at Fountain Blue in Des Plaines.

A special THANK YOU to our sponsors:

Through the generosity of our sponsors and guests, this was one of our most successful events. The funds we raised will be used to give youth access to junior tennis programs across the Chicagoland area.

During the evening, we inducted Violet M. Clark into the 2018 Chicago Tennis Hall of Fame (click here to read her bio) and we recognized 7 recipients for their 2017 tennis achievements (click here for the list of award winners). Congratulations to Vi and all the award winners!!
