Fall Lesson Schedules

Thank you to all of our members and guests for making Summer 2017 such a great session of tennis and pickleball!  We look forward to seeing you at NTC this fall!

NTC is proud of our Junior Excellence Players and Coaches who competed in the USTA National Hardcourt Championships. We are proud to have had three players from our Junior Excellence Program qualify for the largest tournament of the year. This tournament is the US Open for junior tennis players. Only 12 players from each age group in the Midwest Section qualify for this event.  Not only does the winner of this tournament earn the title of National Champion, but the champion from the 16s event is also awarded a wild card into the U.S. Open Junior Singles tournament.

 

The following players enjoyed tournament success such that they were invited to compete at the Hardcourts.

 

Congratulations to:

G 16’s:  Maria Goheen  from Aurora and Olivia Oosterbaan from Hinsdale, both of whom competed in the Girls’ 16 singles and doubles draw held in San Diego. 

B16's: Alex Lee​ from Hinsdale had an amazing tournament at Kalamazoo, Michigan where he made it the Quarterfinal round of the Boys’ 16s main draw.  Alex was narrowly edged out 3-6, 6-4, 6-4. 

Alex also competed in the doubles draw where he and his partner lost in another close three set match: 6-4, 2-6, 8-6.  Alex’s success at “The Zoo” is remarkable as he was the only player from the Midwest Section to make it that far.

 

Not only do these players represent how their hard work is paying off, but they also spark the hopes and dreams of the club's newer players who look up to their example of healthy and competitive determination.

 

We applaud the efforts of these juniors, their coaches and their supportive families, who together produced such impressive results!

Naperville Tennis Club Honored by

USTA/CDTA

Chicago Tennis Patrons 2016 Club of the Year

 

The award was received in part because:
 
NTC is a facility that strives for constant improvement while maintaining a sense of community. Due to a dedicated and talented teaching staff, and devoted enthusiastic club members, NTC is a place where one can witness two to three generations of players involved in programs.  NTC is connected to Naperville and the CDTA in such a mutually beneficial way as to constantly expand tennis offerings and positive experiences for players at all ages and levels, bring and retaining players in the game we all love. Like the USTA, NTC supports diverse programs that promote tennis through encouraging good sportsmanship and fun.  

NTC’s Steve Haas Selected as the
2016 Tournament Director of The Year

 

Steve, PTR certified professional, provides ongoing information and support to all the players and their parents throughout the tournament (both in person and via phone/text if necessary) while also always promoting good sportsmanship and healthy competition among the players.  Both players and parents have consistently recognized Steve for making the tournament play a positive competitive experience whether a player wins or not.  Steve’s work with USTA tournaments represents his dedication to tennis beyond his avid participation as a player and his role as a coach.   Please congratulate Coach Steve when you see him at the club and consider entering your junior player in an NTC Tournament.
