Public courts

  • Most tennis players in New York City play on the public courts under the jurisdiction of the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation.

Commercial and indoor clubs

  • There are also some private concessions that operated bubbled public courts during the winter months. The rate for these are capped by agreements with Parks Dept. and are generally less expensive than full-time    private clubs.


  • Individual, groups and clinics
