Quintathlon 2016

40 years ago, 30 Rackets players met in Montreal for the inaugural Quadrathlon. Since then, with the addition of Real Tennis, there have been four Quintathlons, the most recent being in London in 2012. The Racquet Club of Chicago is thrilled to host this year's event and welcomes and encourages your attendance for a week of camaraderie, great fun, feasts and revelry!

The week will start with a welcome cocktail party on Saturday, May 21, proceed through play every day, a boat cruise along Chicago's lakefront and riverfront, golf at Old Elm Club north of Chicago (or shooting at the famed Max McGraw Wildlife Foundation), an exclusive performance at Second City, a concluding Dinner Dance on Saturday, May 28 and lots more on tap.

Chicago is associated with two elements, Wind and Fire, and those two elements will face off against each other as the two teams competing for the mantel of Quintathlon 2016 Champions.

On this site is further information and registration instructions. We invite you to join us!
