    Racquet and Tennis Club

    370 Park Ave. New York, NY 10022

    It's the ultimate extension of the big fishasmall pool theory. How do you become one of the top 1000 court tennis players in the world? By picking up one of the lopsided wooden rackets and hitting one of the rock-hard, hand-stitched balls. According to educated estimates, there are maybe 500 players of this funky, old game worldwide. But don't worry about the sport going the way of the passenger pigeon: Henry VIII was playing during the beheading of Anne Boleyn. Manhattan's very private Racquet and Tennis Club houses two of about 30 U.S. courts, and most of the others are within driving distance. More >>

    Riverbank State Park Pool

    679 Riverside Drive New York, NY 10031

    Forget overpriced gym memberships and jogging in sweaty overcrowded streets. Forget the swanky and uptight Chelsea Piers. For $2 you can splash and giggle and dolphin-dive in Riverbank State Park's enormous indoor and outdoor pool complex. Rec swim is a community event, a rare treat in this anonymous urban-indoor-gym world. You'll dodge elaborate pool games and swimming lessons as you shriek and somersault amid watery mayhem. Lap swimming is available for the more sedate or serious athletes. The rest of us prefer wriggling around, pretending we're five as we try to avoid getting dunked. More >>

  • Rucker Park

    155th St. & Frederick Douglass Blvd. New York, NY 10039
    212-639-9675 Entertainer's is one of two star-studded leagues that operate each summer at Rucker Park, the legendary Harlem playground at 155th Street and Eighth Avenue. Over the years, these rims have been bent by the likes of Kareem Abdul Jabbar (back when he was still Lew Alcindor) and Kobe Bryant (before the scandal). Originally just named P.S. 156, the courts were dedicated in 1974 to Holcombe Rucker, a heroic Parks Department employee who created a refuge for neighborhood youth underneath the halos of these rims (and begat a veritable brand name).
