REGISTRATION OPENS MAY 3, 2021
The GWTC currently fields teams in the Shoreline Tennis League, Lake Shore League and North Shore Women’s Tennis League. These teams are for dedicated, experienced and competitive players.
Shoreline membership is limited to north suburban park districts or city recreation departments. The Glenview Park District sponsors one A and two B women’s teams. Any seasoned, competitive GWTC member is eligible to participate in Shoreline. Placement for new members will be determined primarily by assessment of the players level by a Glenview Tennis Club pro. Matches are played once a week during June and July. The B teams play on Wednesdays at 10:00am and the A teams play at 10:00am on Thursdays. Any questions, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The North Shore Women’s Tennis League is committed to competitive tennis in a congenial and social atmosphere. Matches are played at local country clubs, bath clubs and park districts. The Club sponsors four teams. Currently we have one A team, one B team, a C team and a D team. League play is doubles only and stresses competitive excellence.
Eligible players must be current members of the GWTC. If you are a non-Glenview resident, you must have been a member of the outdoor league for at least 3 years. Those members desiring a spot on a team must let the North Shore Coordinator know of their interest.

Regularly prescheduled tennis! No calls needed! Just sign up online for the dates you want to play and see who turns up.
Every Monday from June 7 – August 30, 4 courts will be reserved at Gallery Park and possibly another park for regularly scheduled play from 9:30am-11:30am. This is social tennis; players are placed within levels depending on who signed up for that day.
How to register: One week prior to the start of MMP, all GWTC paid up members will be sent a link to a sign up spreadsheet. Once you receive the link, you will be able to sign up for the dates you want to play. You can do this on a week to week basis or you can schedule yourself out as far into the summer as you want and get it on your calendar. By the end of the week prior to play, you will be receiving an email with notification about the park you will be playing at and your court assignment for Monday. No schedule will be sent out.
How to cancel/change your dates: Please try to make any changes before the previous Thursday (5pm) of the Monday you want to play. To cancel, simply delete yourself off the spreadsheet sign up. If you need to make a change after Thursday for the following Monday, you will be responsible for getting a sub and letting Markie Condon, the coordinator, (email@example.com) know.
If we have people who sign up, but don’t show, someone will have to volunteer to leave to make courts of 4. The coordinators will not be volunteering to leave. If we have repeat offenders, they will not be permitted to participate in the program.
How MMP is played: Please arrive on time. Warm up starts promptly at 9:30am. After a 15 minute warm up you will start to play. There are 3 rotations: 9:45-10:20, 10:20-10:55 and 10:55-11:30. After the first round, the winners will move up a court, losers move down and you change partners. To determine your new partner, 2 people from opposite teams will spin their racquets. If they are both up, they play together, if they differ they play with the other partner from the opposite team. Each week after you play you need to mark what court # you should move to the next time you play based on if you won or lost on the court you were on. Example: if you win the last match on court 3, place 2 in the box of the next Monday you’ll play. If you lose, mark court 4 in the box of the next Monday you are going to play. We do not guarantee that is where you will start the next time you play due to the variation of players that sign up week to week.
We are not playing sets. You only need to win by 1 game. If you are tied at 5 minutes before the end of a round, play 1 more no add game to determine the winner.
AND CURRENT MEMBERS OF OUR A AND A/B TRAVEL TEAMS
(930 to 1130am)
Due to the popularity of our newest Monday Matchplay offering last year, we expanded this to 3 courts last summer and plan to continue 3 courts this year. Courts are reserved for players who hold a minimum 4.0 USTA rating OR play on either the A or A/B travel teams during the regular tennis season. If you are unsure as to whether you qualify to play in this higher level of play, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our aim is to keep the play competitive and the best way to do that is to restrict it based on official USTA rankings OR previous A or A/B travel team experience.
