Travel Team Tennis - NTC Hosts Over 17 Men & Women's Travel Teams
NTC offers two travel team options to its members: Northern Illinois Traveling Tennis League (NITTL) and The Jack Barry League.
NITTL Travel Teams
NTC’s NITTL Program offers our members multiple teams in each of the four divisions which include ratings from 2.3 all the way to the Open Division. Matches consist of ladies’ three court doubles teams whose matches start between 10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Thursdays or Fridays. This league accommodates matches of all levels and runs from Mid-September through Mid-May.
To qualify for NITTL at NTC, you need to participate all season in one of the following:
1) full time in a team drill, group lesson, or PCT Lesson
2) play 2x/week, not including team matches
3) pay a team fee of $150 (Partial team fees will be applied if you meet some, but not
all of the above criteria.)
The team experience is complete. In addition to the challenging matches, home match warm-ups, and a social time for post-match refreshments. Upon request, a coach will provide input on your home match play. The coaches assigned to the team drills are highly qualified professionals with valuable experience both playing and coaching competitive doubles. Drills are goal oriented and focus on high percentage tactics. There is a mix of skill building, strategy, and mental toughness training. NTC prides itself on providing the very best instructors delivering the highest value coaching in the Chicago area.
Getting started with teams at NTC is easy to do; you do not need a partner to enroll in team play. We will use the league rules and your current NITTL play record or your club rating if you are
new to the NITTL league.
