Tennis Courts

It’s never been easier to become a tennis player in New York City—you can purchase a tennis permit online for use at any outdoor tennis court during tennis season, which lasts from the first Saturday of April to the Sunday before Thanksgiving.

Permits and Reservations

Visit our Tennis at NYC Parks page to purchase or renew your permit, to reserve a court, or to find more information about our tennis program.

Hours and Schedule

Most courts are open from 8:00 a.m. to dusk, except at Central Park where courts open at 7:00 a.m. and Randall's Island where courts open at 7:00 a.m. and close at 7:00 p.m.

Follow the Rules

Before heading to a court, make sure that you’ve read our rules and regulations. Follow our permit rules, wear smooth-sole tennis shoes, and use a maximum of six tennis balls on each court.

Find an Indoor Tennis Center

A few parks offer opportunities to play tennis indoors. Indoor tennis does not require an NYC Parks tennis permit, and has special pricing, schedules, and hours of play. Learn more about playing Indoor Tennis
