Client Testimonial of the Month

"I just wanted to write a note to say that my son had a really great time at the Windy City Field house tiny tots sports camp this past week. He greatly enjoyed all the sports and other fun activities. He would come home every night and tell us about the sports and how well did- " I was the fastest kid" or " I was the captain of my soccer team." Thanks to you and your staff for all the effort and enthusiasm you put into the camp programming!”

Client Testimonials

Weekly Groups

"I have been renting from Windy City for a few years now and I have had nothing but great experiences with them.  Unlike other facilities, they are always willing to go the extra mile and help whether it be with setting up for games or accommodating specific schedule requests.  I use Windy City for basically every indoor sport imaginable: Basketball, Volleyball, Floor Hockey and Dodgeball.  They are prepared, keep everything running on time and just generally a pleasure to work with.  I fully endorse Windy City Fieldhouse."
- Holden M.

Birthday Parties

"I wanted to let you know that we were at a birthday party yesterday at WCF and had a GREAT time!  My son LOVED it!  It was just an overall amazing experience.  Thanks again, can't wait for our party [at WCF]!!"
- Lauren C. Birthday Party Parent

"My son Jordan celebrated his 6th birthday this past Sunday at Windy City Fieldhouse.  I wanted to make sure that I took the time to let you know what a fantastic job that your staff did throughout the entire process – from the planning stages, the day of execution to the clean up afterwards… Alexis did a great job helping me plan a perfect event… [The staff] was helpful and professional throughout the entire event all the way through helping me pack up my car and not having me clean up the facility at all..

Please know that this is the third birthday party we have thrown for our son over the years and your team by far blew the other experiences out of the water.  I understand why Chicago Magazine voted you tops for Children’s Parties.

The last two days Jordan’s classmates have been coming up to me at school telling me how much fun they had (and I have received several emails from parents).  Thank you again for employing such a great staff and making it such a special day for my son."

"My husband and I want to THANK YOU for all your help in helping us with our son's 4th birthday party.  Before I met your staff, I was little nervous just thinking about what can go wrong at the set up, with games/activities, and if our guest's kids would have a good time.  But your staff were very courteous and went the extra mile to make it all possible and smooth for us.  We were very impressed to see how cool and fun they were with the kids.  All of my guests called me and said they had a great time and that your staff did a phenomenal job engaging kids in fun games and activities.  As a result, the parents, for the first time at a kids' birthday party, sat back, relaxed, ate, and enjoyed their conversation with other parents.  For that, we want to thank you and your staff for giving us the time and opportunity to enjoy our party...It was awesome!!  GREAT JOB!!  We will be back soon...THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!"

Bar/Bat Mitzvahs

"I am by nature a skeptical person but my event with WCF has made me a true believer.  So many parents called to thank me and tell me how much their children loved the scavenger hunt.  My son is quiet and it never occurred to us that he would have the best Bar Mitzvah party of the year.  WCF took care or every detail.  They were flexible, creative, responsive and went above and beyond the call of duty.  I really wanted an event that would reflect his personality.  WCF delivered that and I just got to relax and enjoy. They made sure to tailor the event to us in every way – from the addition of books as a bonus on the scavenger hunt to the location of the reception and the food we served."
Bar Mitzvah Parent

“Organization is not my strong point so throughout the process of planning my son’s Bar Mitzvah I had several panic attack moments.  I dreamed the invitations didn’t go out.  I worried the buses wouldn’t show.  But I NEVER ONCE worried about the scavenger hunt or any other part of the event that Alexis handled.  She was absolutely amazing.  She took care of everything.  She went above and beyond in every way.  She was constantly thinking about ways to improve the event from the actual scavenger hunt to the food.  I cannot thank her enough for our wonderful day!”
Bar Mitzvah Parent

"I wanted to take the time to let you know how happy we were with our event planner, Alexis Kniaz.  This is the second event we have had with Windy City Fieldhouse and we couldn't be happier. 

 Our first event, three years ago, was a build-a-bike workshop at our children's B'nei Mitzvah.  This was an amazing event that changed the way our family feels about Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. 

Alexis worked tirelessly with us early on, throwing out idea after idea, but, as we had set the bar pretty high with our (previous charitable giving) event, nothing seemed like it would stack up.  Then, when we were just about to throw in the towel and settle for a run of the mill dance party, we finally agreed on a theme.  From that time forward, as our idea took shape, Alexis and I worked together to bring it to life…  She has an easygoing, yet vibrant, persona, making her great to work with.  The result was that I got to do the event just the way I wanted to, but she took care of all the details so I could work on other aspects of the Bar Mitzvah that I needed to.  At no time did I not trust that everything would be taken care of.

 This culminated in our fabulous casino themed charity party, where all winnings were donated by us, but in our guests names, to worthy charities.  Our adult guests gambled, our son's teenage friends danced, and a great time was had by all.  We had the best of all worlds.

 Our thanks goes out to Alexis for all her hard work in making this party all we wanted it to be."

-Cheryl K.

"From my first phone call to the sales staff, it was smooth sailing.  Everything from the catering, to the cocktail hour, to the table linens, to the balloons and centerpieces to the selection of great team sports for the kids (of all ages) to the fabulous DJ...the staff at Windy City was the FINEST I have ever worked with.  No details were left undone.  The facility is run like a fine oiled machine.  We were guests at our own party  - and most of all, our son and his friends said it was the "best Bar Mitzvah EVER!"  I would recommend this venue again in a HEARTBEAT!  THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!"
-Debbie R.
Parent

“I am writing this letter to let you know how great an experience we had at my son’s Bar Mitzvah. The great thing about having his Bar Mitzvah at Windy City Fieldhouse is the various events that can be planned, numerous different spaces that can be used and the flexibility that was offered to us in making our decisions. From the moment we booked the event I felt we were in competent, confident hands.  Most importantly it was an event that my son is still beaming about.”
-Merle B.
Parent

"The event went great!  Everything was very smooth.  The client loved it all and your staff was a pleasure to work with.  Alexis and Meredith are fantastic and were a pleasure to work with.  I hope that we have the opportunity to all work together again in the future as well!"
- Blue Plate Catering

“Everyone said the event was fantastic!  The adults appreciated the ability to relax and have a great time while observing the kids having their fun participating in the activities.  Everyone also commented on how great the food was for the event…both kids and adults.  One comment I kept hearing throughout the night was that this event “was going to be a hard act to follow”.  Thank you for a terrific time and a terrific event!”
-Gary S.
Parent, on his son’s Bar Mitzvah 

"The party was a smash!  Many of our guests commented to us that they had a great time, and that the facilities, the food, and everything else was excellent.  We also agreed.  We left very pleased with the way the party turned out.  It both met and even exceeded our expectations.  Many of our guests commented that this was an excellent place to have the Bar Mitzvah party.  The kids appeared to be having a great time, and even the adults said they truly enjoyed themselves.  Thanks again for helping us to coordinate the event and make this successful!  We know and expect to have fond memories of this occasion."

-Sandy and Mark L.

"Mitchell's Bar Mitzvah certainly met your objective: you and your staff worked with us to ensure that a day after, a year after and 20 years after our celebration, we and our guests will remember our event as a phenomenal experience that surpassed our expectations and those of our guests.  And best of all, you allowed us to enjoy the celebration hassle-free as WCF setup the event, organized activities and cleaned up after the celebration.  Windy City exceeded our expectations and created lasting memories for us, our family and guests.  I look forward to having other events at Windy City in the future."
