Limited Team Spots Still Available for Forts on the Courts on Mar 14-CANCELLED

Mon March 2, 2020

This event has been cancelled due to CDC recommendations


The Racket Club introduced its first Fort Building battle in March 2017 which turned out to be a great success! Teams made up of family and friends are given three sheets of cardboard (96 w x 48 h) and one roll of duct tape to design and build a fort of their choice. Additional materials are allowed to finish the masterpiece. This battle combines quality time, team work and creativity to ultimate heights. Prizes will be awarded to the three favorite forts. A complimentary ice cream bar from Baskin Robbins Crystal Lake finishes off a fort-astic March evening!
