For the 2019-2020 fall/winter season, Winnetka Platform Tennis Club will offer two options for men:
The CPTC Travel Leagues
If you are assigned a team in the CPTC travel league, you will be placed on a series and play against Chicago-area clubs such in Evanston, Wilmette, Glenview, Glencoe, Highland Park, Northbrook, Lake Forest, Glen Ellen, Barrington, Hinsdale, Chicago and more. For the 2018-2019 season, we had 20 men’s teams competing in Chicago Platform Tennis Charities fall/winter leagues at a range of levels between beginner and expert. Men’s league matches are played on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights from approximately 7-10pm. Food and balls will be provided. Cost is $850.
The North Shore League
New last year, we expect to see growth in the North Shore League where we play against nearby clubs on Sunday nights from 7-10pm. This league will include players in levels 3.0-4.0 (CPTC Series equivalents of 13-32), with the same play format as the CPTC travel league (but without any long distance travel!). Food and balls will be provided. Cost is $650.
If there is room, we will permit players who sign up for the CPTC travel league to also play in the North Shore League on Sundays for an additional fee of $300, resulting in a total cost for the Double-dip of $1,150 for both the leagues – two nights of paddle for a bargain price!
The Viking Spring Paddle Summer League
During the off-season, The WPTC also participates in the Viking Spring Paddle Summer League which generally plays matches from April-June.
