About Us

Diversey Tennis Center, managed and operated by the The Lincoln Park Tennis Association, is the only public CLAY COURT facility in the city. We sit at the eastern-most foot of Diversey Parkway in Lincoln Park right next to Diversey Harbor and the Diversey Driving Range. Some have called Diversey Tennis Center a “hidden gem in the city” for our idyllic setting and expertly maintained Har-Tru clay courts. We are open from mid-May to mid-October and players of all skill levels are welcome!

As part of our mission to promote the game of tennis and give back to our community, Diversey Tennis Center provides youth tennis instruction for programs organized by the Chicago Park District. Come see what we are all about and play the clay.
