Purchase a Single-Play Permit

A single-play permit allows you to play at any tennis court in any borough for one hour. For doubles play, permits are good for two hours of tennis. Single-play permits cost $15 per person. The single-play permit will be mailed to you, and you must bring it with you in order to play tennis on an outdoor court during tennis season.

A permit is needed to use an outdoor tennis court from the first Saturday of April to the Sunday before Thanksgiving. A permit is only valid for the year in which it is issued.
