Hundreds hit the courts across Chicagoland on Thursday, Sept. 30, to play for more than just friendly competition.
The annual Court the Cure fundraiser is spearheaded by the Winnetka-based North Shore Women’s Platform Tennis League, a nonprofit that reportedly comprises thousands of local women.
This year, the event raised thousands of dollars to support Equal Hope, a Chicago-based nonprofit focusing on eliminating disparities in women’s healthcare.
About 20 park districts in the Chicago area participated, and at the Winnetka Platform Tennis Club, a special pro-am paired local paddle tennis pros with league players.
After a year off because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Court the Cure was the 24th version of the league’s event.
