Summer continues at a record pace for summer classes, leagues and camps! And we are expecting more of the same this fall as we launch our new fall class, league and camp offerings through Hot Shot Sports.

Below is a list of the new facilities Hot Shots Sports will be using this fall.

Update on Windy City Fieldhouse’s Sports Complex Division:
As you begin reviewing the fall program guide, you will see one obvious change – the Windy City Fieldhouse sports complex will not be one of the available venues for programs. After a remarkable run of 25+ years, we’re announcing that we’ll be closing our sports complex division at 2367 West Logan Blvd on August 31 of this year and moving 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 will be August 31, 2023. Until then, we will continue to operate our summer youth programs, birthday parties, private lessons and more at WCF – no changes there. As noted above, outside of the new locations which might be even closer to you, Hot Shots Sports programs will be the same quality and same coaches you are used to at WCF – after all, they have been running that side of our youth programs since day one! 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 contact them with more details about birthday parties and court rentals starting this fall. Until then, it is business as usual at WCF with a very busy summer ahead!
Summer at WCF and Beyond…
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. Thanks again for being a friend of the Windy City Fieldhouse. While it is hard to reach an end of an era with our sports complex, we are excited for the next chapter focused on WCF Events. Please don’t be a stranger this summer – come by to rent a court for the last time, book your final birthday party at WCF or just stop in to say goodbye before the end of an era arrives. Let’s make some more great memories at WCF to last a lifetime!
Murrel and Bob
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.
