How does the ChiTownTennis Tourney Work?
Every Match Counts

Tennis Tourney Basic Concept

Our tourneys are a single elimination format with a consolation bracket. Meaning you are guaranteed at least 2 match-ups. This tourney format will not be played at a single location over a weekend instead players are given 7 to 10 days to play each round's match.

Our tourneys will be mixed gender unless we have particularly strong female enrollment in a city. The tourneys will be singles based until we receive enough response to open it up for doubles. Players will be grouped in brackets with players no greater than .5 of their current TLN League Rating. Meaning Skilled - 3.0 players will be matched with other 3.0 players and at most with Competitive - 3.5 level players. Competitive - 3.5 level players could be grouped with Advanced - 4.0 players but will not have Elite 4.5 level players in their bracket. We now restrict beginner's from joining the tourney's.

Our Guarantee

We need at least 6 players to make a tourney bracket. If we can NOT reach this criteria we'll send you an email offering a refund or we'll enroll you into the next tourney with your entry fee. Our hope is to run multiple skill level brackets for multiple draws. The 7-day money back guarantee expires as soon as the tourney starts. Tourneys will NOT allow for late enrollment.


Players will be entered into the tourney that associates with their TLN's Player Rating. If a NEW player (Someone whose played less than 5 matches with our service) wants to join the tourney they will agree to be placed in the tourneys highest bracket. (This is admin's discretion) If a player wants to participate in a second draw at a rating higher than their Player Rating they will be allowed to purchase a 2nd entry. The League reserves the right to remove a player from a bracket if it is determined by match results that said player has more likely underrated their playing ability.

I think this league is great! It allows me to schedule around work and life. The people I've played with so far have all been competitive and fun!

Your Schedule and Availability

We give first round opponents two weekends to play the first match and then each following round will have a full week to play the match. Players need to be available to play for at least the first 3 weeks after kickoff. Players with 1-week work trips or week long vacations during the first 3 weeks shouldn't participate in the tourney.


The ChiTownTennis staff will seed 25% of the participants based veteran status (Most number of matches played in their career) with the program. If we have 8 players enrolled we'll seed the top 2 players, 16 players the top 4 players. The rest of the players will be randomly entered into the draw.

Consolation Bracket

We will run a consolation bracket for the players who lost their first match. Seedings for the consolation bracket will be randomly selected by the ChiTownTennis staff. The winner of the consolation bracket will receive at least a $25 Gift Card. Matches need to be played to crown a consolation bracket winner.

Where to Play?

Because the seeding of the tourney is mainly randomize the higher seed will NOT have home court preference. The league strongly suggests you meet half-way to cut the commute in half for both players. We provide an extensive list of tennis courts that have user submitted ratings. If two players need guidance they can certainly email our staff for suggestions.

Playing Format

The preferred playing format for tourneys should be 2 sets with a 3rd set tie-breaker or 2 out of 3 sets. If the two players can't agree the default format will be the 2 sets with a 3rd set tie-breaker. In NYC we will accept 10 game pro set results mainly due to court availability.

Target Audience

This will be our most competitive format. The target audience is for the player who are good sports and love to play competitive matches.

Prize Pool

The prize pool will be based upon enrollment in each bracket. A tourney can have multiple brackets.
6 to 10 players: Winner: 2 Items from the Prize Pool, Runner-Up: 1 Item from the Prize Pool, Consolation Winner: 1 Item from the Prize Pool
11 to 16: Winner: 4 Items from the Prize Pool, Runner-Up: 2 Items from the Prize Pool, Consolation Winner: 1 Item from the Prize Pool
17 to 23: Winner: 6 Items from the Prize Pool, Runner-Up: 3 Items from the Prize Pool, Consolation Winner: 2 Items from the Prize Pool
24+: Winner: 8 Items from the Prize Pool, Runner-Up: 4 Items from the Prize Pool, Consolation Winner: 2 Items from the Prize Pool, Consolation Runner-Up: 1 Item from the Prize Pool

      All tourney champions will be receive an entry into the End of the Year National Tournaments at the champions discounted rate.

Cost to Participate

First ten players will pay only $19.95. Next ten players will pay $22.95 and any following players will pay $24.95. A low cost way to play competitive tennis.


So Join Page and we'd be happy to get you enrolled into the next tournament.

Finer Details

* If a player doesn't respond to their opponent for the main bracket match they will NOT be placed into the consolation bracket unless we hear from the player.
* A match needs to be played in the consolation bracket for a gift card to be distributed.
* A player who doesn't give a reasonable availability (Most matches are played evenings and weekends in this program) to play the match within the deadline window will be at risk of defaulting the match.
