1. Low cost - $30/person entry fee. Hourly court fees split among 4 players. 7 clubs charge no guest fee for Gladiators. For a 2 hour match, you would pay as low as only $9 per player at Oak Lawn Tennis Club, or $11.50 per player at 5 Star, and low prices at Hanover Park, Rush-Copley, River Trails, Park Forest, and XS Tennis. 
2. You can join, even if you don't have a partner - Sign up by yourself, and we can locate a player for you. 
3. More time to play each match - 3 weeks to play each of the first 3 matches. 2 weeks to play each of the last 4 matches when the weather is warming up. 
4. Limited Travel - If you are in Chicago, you will only play other Chicago teams. If you are in the western suburbs, you will only play teams in that area. Same with the northwest suburbs. 
5. Playoffs follow the season in early May. Champions are awarded.
