Our Story

Midtown began as a single tennis club in Chicago and has grown to become a leader in the upscale tennis and fitness club industry. We are comprised of 8 magnificently appointed clubs throughout the U.S. and Canada, combining health and wellness with community and personal attention in an environment designed to build memories as much as it does muscles.

Tennis is in Midtown’s DNA. We’ve been the country’s premier tennis club since 1970 and our clubs continue to offer world-class indoor and outdoor tennis courts and instruction.

Midtown is family-owned with the commitment to be the world’s finest club. This is not just something we say, it is something we live around the clock.


To inspire you through movement, community,  and personal attention.


At the heart of Midtown is the desire for our members to find a home away from home. Not just a place to come in for a quick workout, but a place to spend the day poolside with the entire family, play tennis with old friends or new ones, or relax with a glass of wine by a roaring fire. It’s the Midtown way of making sure you never go to the gym again.


We donate 10% of our profits to charitable causes and take an active role in community leadership. Throughout the years, our philanthropic efforts have raised millions of dollars for various charitable causes in our communities.

Midtown Athletic Clubs is proud to be the only two-time recipient of the IHRSA Outstanding Community Service Award. This award is presented to an IHRSA member that has made a longstanding commitment to making a difference in, and beyond, their community.
