We also want to send our thanks and appreciation to Robin Baumgarten for hosting the event and Matt Kosterman Productions for photographing the event.  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 Rod Schroeder  (Click here to read bio) into the 2020 Chicago Tennis Hall of Fame and we recognized 2 recipients for their 2019 tennis achievements.  Congratulations to all the award winners!!

During the evening, we also announced our new name.  We are now Serve & Return Chicago!!

Serve & Return Chicago thanks everyone for their support and we look forward to seeing you in 2021.
