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. Once purchased, tennis permits cannot be refunded or transferred.

Tennis Season

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

NYC’s tennis season is delayed until further notice. At this time, we have suspended tennis permit sales for the 2020 season. If you have already purchased a tennis permit, it will be valid through 2021.
