Outdoor Courts

The A.C. Nielsen Tennis Center operates as an enterprise fund, meaning the facility operates solely through user fees. Due to the global pandemic of COVID-19, and the added financial burden to the Nielsen Tennis Center, the Park District has modified the outdoor tennis operation and adjusted the fee structure for reserved outdoor tennis courts.   

  • Member: $5 (60 minutes) or $10 (90 minutes)
  • Non-Members: $15 (60 minutes) or $20 (90 minutes)
  • Walk on (no reservation; play is limited to court availability; play is available only for time frames during which a court is open, but no more than 60 minutes: Free
