TWC of the Month: Homewood-Flossmoor Racquet and Fitness Club

The Homewood-Flossmoor Racquet and Fitness Club in Homewood, Ill., has a lot to be proud of. The club, which is 30 miles from Chicago, celebrates its 35th anniversary this year. This Park District Facility, which features 10 indoor courts and a fitness center, lap pool, wellness center, and conference room, has won numerous awards over the years. Named a Top 50 Tennis Welcome Center for the past two years, H-F also is a two-time National Park & Recreation Association Gold Medal winner, a USTA Facility of the Year, and USTA Member Organization of the Year.

Homewood-Flossmoor has been a Tennis Welcome Center since the program started in 2004. “We’ve always been a facility that has looked for something new to keep peoples’ interest or stimulate interest in the sport,” says Sylvia Gothard, H-F’s Racquet Sports Manager. “Having the TWC attached to our name makes us feel we have to go that extra mile. We want to stay one of the Top TWCs and we want to be a role model for the program.”

With what seems like an unlimited number of programs and events that get people excited and involved in the sport, it’s no wonder the facility has more then 3,800 family memberships. Their biggest event is the 10-day “Tennisfest,” which attracts more than 2,500 people.
