It does not seem that long ago that there was snow in Central Park but all of sudden it seems that Spring is here. So as a result, the Central Park tennis center is opening on Saturday April 14th. The weather is supposed to be 77 degrees!
Court conditions and updates 212-280-0205
The NYC tennis permit currently costs $200 per season. Due to a declining amount of permits sold each year, the City is proposing to cut the price in half to $100. About 6000 permits were sold last season compared to 2008 when the amount was more than double and the price stood at $100.
It’s that time of year. Monday is officially the first day of Spring and that means opening day at the Central Park tennis courts. Located mid park at 93th street, they are home to 26 Har tru courts and five hardcourt courts which are used for teaching once the season starts. The hardcourts stay open all year long and are free out of season. You just need to put your name on a sign in sheet.
Do you play tennis on the Upper west side? With 26 Hartru courts and several hardcourts for lessons located mid park at 96th street, maybe you should. A full season permit only costs $200 and for seniors and minors it’s about 1/10th of that for the whole season.
You can obtain your permit online or in person in several locations including Paragon Sports downtown and the Arsenal on 5th avenue.
The courts are in pristine condition and thanks to some rain on Thursday will be ready for play! Always check the hotline on days that it rains.
