Please note that this address will direct you to the main parking
lot for the park (which is very large) and the main parking lot is
a 7-10 minute walk to the tennis courts. You may also Google the
Naperville Central High School location and have your GPS take you
there as the tennis courts are located right across the street from
the high school parking lot (and there is also street parking right
next to the tennis courts as well). If you are using the USTA
App on your phone, DO NOT use the Map/Directions feature on the
App as this will direct you to the Naperville Tennis Club,

event of rain, please check online here for a note that the

is in the finals of the Front Draw or Back Draw and that Final
match would be their 4th match of the day, then the finals will be
moved to Sunday at 9:00 AM. Also, while all of the match times are
posted, some of the Back Draw match times may need to be adjusted
based on the outcome of Front Draw matches. For example, you will
notice that some Back Draws have the same times for 2 consecutive
rounds of matches for a player (e.g., the QF round may have a match
time of 1:00 PM and the SF round may have a match time of 1:00 PM
as well). If the earlier round match ends up being played in the
Back Draw (due to the results of the Front Draw matches), then the
subsequent round matches in the Back Draw will have to have their
times adjusted accordingly. If you have any questions about this,
please check with the Tournament Director.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, and if you have any
questions, please contact the Tournament Director, Steve Haas, at
