As a community fitness center, Courts Plus recognizes the importance of investing into the community it calls home! With the help of our generous members, Courts Plus finds several ways to give back throughout the year.
Throughout the year, Courts Plus participates in several collection programs, including Toys for Tots, collecting food for the United Community Concerns Association, the AAUW Book Collection and Soles for Kids, which distributes shoes throughout the world to those in need.
The annual John Jevitz Turkey Tennis Tournament, held around Thanksgiving, also collects food for the Yorkfield Food Pantry. During Thanksgiving we also are a sponsor for the Dan Gibbons Turkey Trot 5K, which raises money to combat hunger and poverty in DuPage County.
We're also proud to host the Hit for the Hospital Charity Tennis Tournament, which benefits the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
Courts Plus has also helped contribute to local student-led projects, such as Hygiene for Humanity, which provides travel size items for personal hygiene kits for the homeless.
The City of Elmhurst and Elmhurst Park District partner with SCARCE for holiday lights recycling. Members and Courts Plus visitors are welcome to drop off their tangled, broken or burned out holiday lights to Courts Plus during that time. Look for more information during the fall months.
