The well-known tennis player George Jennings formed the George Jennings Tennis School at Lake Forest College in the mid 1950s. Jennings not only won a number of tennis titles himself, including the United States Lawn Tennis Association National Public Park Championships multiple years in both singles and doubles, but taught tennis lessons and served as varsity head tennis coach for Lake Forest College from the late 1950s to 1966.
The George Jennings Tennis School was largely a summer school and drew students from all over Illinois, though most were from the Chicago area.
