Best Tennis Courts - 2012
Riverside Clay Tennis Association
E. 96th St.
New York, NY 10128
The clay courts at Riverside Park near 96th Street were lovingly grown out of once-awful, weedy dirt courts by fundraising and maintained through the efforts of volunteers with the Riverside Clay Tennis Association and staff. An irrigation system was added in the late 1990s. Play costs just $15 for a day pass. A season pass is $200 for adults, $10 for players ages 16 and under, and $20 for seniors. There are a limited number of registrations online, but it?s mostly first come, first serve (literally). Riverside Park, between the West Side Highway and the Hudson River Greenway, near 96th Street, 212-978-0277, rcta.info (10115)
