Tennis Permit Renewal

Step 1 of 2

The Parks tennis season starts on the first Saturday of April () and ends on the Sunday before Thanksgiving (). Season permits or single play tickets are required to play in all boroughs.

Through this form, you can do the following, using a credit card:

  • Renew your full-season permit*
  • Purchase single-play tennis permits**
  • Buy reservation tickets (Central Park courts at 93rd Street & Prospect Park courts only)**
  • Rent a recreation locker (Central Park courts at 93rd Street only)

Men's lockers at Central Park's 93rd Street courts are sold out for the 2016 season.

If you are applying for a tennis permit for the first time, you must do so by mail or in person.

* Tennis permits originally obtained at Paragon Sports in Manhattan CANNOT be renewed online. Please renew at Paragon or apply for a new permit by mail or in person through one of the Parks permit offices.

** At this point, we are unable to offer printing of single-play or reservation tickets immediately upon purchase. Please allow a week or so for delivery.

All fields are required except those indicated as “optional.”
