One of CDTA's goals is to grow the adult tennis playing population. Of particular interest is the 18-30-year-old “millennial” population. As a barometer of the demographics of adult play in Chicago, only 8% of our 3,000+ USTA Adult League players fall between the ages of 18 and 31; 72% of adult league players are between the age of 45 and 74. Read on below to see how the CDTA forged some positive partnerships this year to help introduce more people to tennis.
