NY Tennis at Central Park

Located at 96th St. and Central Park Drive the Tennis Center features 26 newly reconditioned Har-tru courts and 4 hard courts in the heart of Central Park. The tennis season at this iconic location begins in early April and weather permitting, runs through November. A full range of adult and junior programs are available led by our certified instructors. Our landmark tennis house features a Pro-Shop with on-site stringing, snack bar, locker rooms, and a spacious outdoor veranda. 

We offer private and semi-private lessons for players of all ages and levels. Our adult group clinics and cardio tennis are fun and challenging. The junior development program is for children ages 6 to 16 of all levels and our Tiny Tots program is designed for ages 4 to 7. Our summer camp is a great way to keep the kids healthy and active while improving their tennis skills. All tennis lessons and programs are taught on hard courts.
