Club Life


Unlike most clubs, the New York Tennis Club does NOT charge any additional court fees, so members can have the flexibility to play at will — and as often as they choose.

Members generally arrive at their convenience and find others ready for play, or you may also arrange games in advance so you know exactly what time your singles or doubles game will start.  Play is unlimited all day long! Our friendly game-arranger coordinates a round-robin scramble every Tuesday and Thursday morning for all players at all levels, and weekend games and tournaments, too.


Opening Day is the 2d Saturday in May; outdoor play continues until mid-October, when the bubbles go up to cover all six courts for our 28-week indoor season.


This year, Opening Day is May 9, 2020!  We encourage all members to come with guests for our popular Open House, including free tennis and lunch for members and their guests.  Holiday weekends are accompanied by BBQs — favorite casual social occasions for members and their guests.  You’ll find old and new friends and tennis partners to compete with and/or socialize with for a lifetime!
