A younger swings his pickleball paddle as his parter, an older man, looks at the path of the ball over the net.

Tennis Membership

Some of our tennis courts are also lined for pickleball play. At these courts, a tennis permit is required during the tennis season, which lasts from the first Saturday in April to the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Visit our Tennis at NYC Parks page to purchase a full-season or single-play tennis permit.
