CATS’ Social Committee oversees a number of different events throughout the year.
Typically these include a round robin mixed doubles competition at Lakeshore or other outside or indoor venues with food and party afterward, along with prizes for the winners.
Fall Kickoff Party, Saturday, September 21: Start our new year with the annual party that includes round-robin tennis followed by dinner on Lakeshore’s rooftop. The deadline to sign up is September 18, but slots are limited and fill up, so don’t wait! See the flier for details.
Members attend sporting events such as hockey with the Blackhawks or Wolves, basketball with the Bulls, or baseball with the Sox and Cubs.
Oak Brook Polo Club, Sunday, September 8: CATS members can watch as Prince Charles’ polo team from England comes to the Oak Brook Polo Club to play against the home team in the Butler Cup. The match begins at 3:15, doors are open at 1:00. CATS members and guests will meet at 1 PM at the entrance to the Marriott Drake Hotel, 2301 York Road, Oak Brook, IL. From there, we will take the shuttle bus to the polo grounds. The buses run every 15 minutes in a continuous loop. Stragglers can take the shuttle on their own. Early bird tickets are $60 per person ($100 per couple) until August 18. The price includes hors d’oeuvres, top shelf open bar and give-aways. After August 18th tickets are 75 per person ($125 per couple). A portion of the proceeds will benefit A Safe Haven, which helps the homeless find housing and get on their feet.
