Update on Windy City Fieldhouse’s Sports Complex Division:
After a remarkable run of 25+ years, we have closed our sports complex division at 2367 West Logan Blvd on August 31 of this year and moved the rest of our business to a new office location focused solely on Windy City Fieldhouse’s national corporate event planning division, WCF Events. This isn’t a decision we made lightly, after all the success we’ve had, and especially after persevering through the pandemic. Unfortunately, in the end, the decision wasn’t just ours to make. The last day for our sports complex division and the sports complex was August 31, 2023.
With all that said, we are NOT closing Windy City Fieldhouse as a business but rather moving our focus to running corporate events in Chicago and across the country out of a new office location for WCF Events – just a regular 5,000 sqft office vs. 55,000 sqft sports facility. In the end, it was an incredible run and we will miss running the sports complex and seeing the generations of families playing sports in our facility.
We do want to leave our loyal clients with some resources for replacement services so you can find new programs you can trust:
Birthdays and Court Rentals: In addition, we will be partnering with a few locations to transition our clients for other programs such as Birthday Parties and Court Rentals to new location(s). In the coming weeks, we will share more details about alternative locations for birthday parties and court rentals.
Youth Programs: Hot Shots Sports is taking over full operations of our Windy City Sports Academy, you can once again expect the SAME COACHES and SAME QUALITY in programming – after all, they have been running that side of our youth programs since day one! The only change will be new locations!
While it is hard to reach an end of an era with our sports complex, we are excited (albeit it with a bittersweet taste in our mouths) for the next chapter focused on WCF Events. We truly appreciate all of your support and patronage over the last 26 years. It has been a pleasure to be a part of the community and a safe place to play sports in Chicago. Thanks again for being a friend of the Windy City Fieldhouse. We miss everyone already!

The 3-on-3 tournament at Windy City Fieldhouse was a huge success. The venue provided the perfect location and amenities for our event.
The March of Dimes 3-on-3 tournament was fabulous… WCF is an excellent location for this event!
We could not have asked for a better place to hold our first ever Hoops 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament.
The most outstanding characteristic about the evening was the friendly and personable staff that looked like they were having fun too! …I think they did a wonderful job of corralling and getting things going. A wonderful evening was had by all. Thank you for your time, effort and patience. Of course we will think of you for all future events.
Our 18th Annual Ray Meyer March of Dimes 3-on-3 Basketball Classic was a success due in part to our new location, Windy City Fieldhouse. Our planning committee, staff, sponsors and attendees were very happy with the facilities. We were impressed with the helpfulness of the staff and look forward to holding the event at Windy City Fieldhouse again in 2006.
We could not have asked for a better place to hold our first ever Hoops for the Hill 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament. The staff lent their expertise throughout the whole planning process and really worked with us to put together a great event.
