HOW TO PLAY

The 119th Street Tennis Courts (also known as the "Over the Tracks" Tennis Courts) are public courts within the NYC Parks & Recreation system. Anyone can play. Most courts are distributed on a first-come/first-serve basis.

Each player needs one of two things:
 - a current NYC Parks season tennis permit, or
- a pre-printed "single play" ticket from NYC Parks

NY State Assembly Member Danniel O'Donnell allocates $125,000 for court resurfacing

Thanks to an allocation by NY State Assembly Member Daniel O'Donnell, much need resurfacing of the 119th Street Courts is not far off. The allocated funds will be used to reimburse the expense of resurfacing the courts, once final approval is given by NYC Parks, the Ways & Means Committee of the NY State Assembly and the NY State Dormitory Authority, which is the agency that will distribute the funds. The Riverside Park Conservancy will pay for the resurfacing once the final approvals have been given and then be reimbursed by the State. This is a multi-year process, but progress is being made.
