What Makes West Loop Special?

We’re more than just Hoops. We’re WAC \ noun: WACK\

Chicago’s most popular basketball court outside the United Center in the ’90s was Hoops the Gym, at 1380 W. Randolph St.—where His Airness, Michael Jordan trained—before Chicago Athletic Clubs purchased the 27,000-square foot building in 2005.

During the peak of the Chicago Bull’s championship era, Hoops the Gym Stadium Club opened in the West Loop in 1996 sporting three full courts with overlooking skyboxes, training facilities and private party rooms. While local colleges and boys and girls clubs would have tournaments, clinics and camps here, the Bulls and other visiting NBA players would practice at the Hoops courts as well.

Renowned personal trainer Tim Grover conditioned Jordan and as many as 40 other NBA players like Antoine Walker and Jerry Stackhouse throughout the late ’90s and early 2000s at Hoops. And notably, Hoops was where Jordan played pickup games with the likes of Charles Barkley and other NBA superstars before his 2001 NBA comeback.
