The Plaza Tennis Center
Captained by extensively experienced staffers, The Plaza Tennis Center invites racquets to swing in private and group lessons, tennis leagues, and tournaments. Private sessions for adults and children home in on individual skills customized around student goals and styles of play, while group classes pit pairs of friends and prefriends in calorie-burning drills emphasizing repetition and situational point play. Meanwhile, leagues pair similarly matched players in social beginner pairings, coed World Team Tennis formations, or Flex groups. The Plaza Tennis Center also hosts an array of tournaments on its 14 outdoor courts—each recently resurfaced, lighted, and tinted in U.S. Open colors—where players of all ages and levels of experience face off over the net.
