Permits for kids and teens younger than 18 years old cost $10. Once purchased, tennis permits cannot be refunded or transferred.
Receipt of Tennis Purchase
After placing an order online, please allow up to three weeks to receive your tennis permit by mail. We do not offer same-day permits online.
Purchasing Tennis Permits in Person
You can also purchase or renew your tennis permit in person at the Arsenal, located at 830 Fifth Avenue in Central Park, between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays.
If you recently renewed or purchased your tennis permit online, for faster service, you can pick up your permit in person at the Arsenal.
Create an Online Tennis Account
We are using a new permitting system for the 2022 tennis season. In order to manage your tennis information online, you need to create an account with New York City.

To create an account, have the following documents handy:
