One of the oldest tennis-only clubs in the United States, New Rochelle Tennis Club serves up professional tennis teachings as well as a wide range of racket-friendly amenities. A one-hour private lesson assists players in perfecting shots from the forehand to the overhead smash, helping bring players' games to the next level and opponents to the brink of frustrated tears (a $100 value). After a session of spheroid slinging, players can refresh themselves at the snack bar, scrub up in the ample shower facilities, or meditate in the comfort of the TV lounge. The full-service pro shop—stocked with shirts ($20+), rackets ($100+), and hats ($22), and staffed by the club's own expert racket restringer and technician, Chris Tripodi—keeps court commandos from having to craft their own equipment from household items and stolen office supplies. Put newly acquired skills and tennis tackle to the test with a one-week trial of full-time membership, providing access to the club’s eight scrupulously maintained Har-Tru courts at any open time (a $235 value).

Winston Buddle, founder and director of Golden Touch Soccer, has worked with thousands of young soccer players over two decades of coaching?including his son, Edson, an MLS All Star. Winston's own career began in Montego Bay, where he was a feared striker at every level he played. That success snowballed into an impressive professional career in the U.S., Greece, and Cyprus. Since trading in his cleats for a whistle, Winston has helped transform youth soccer players into Division I athletes, regional and national stars, and potential Olympians. Students soak up his wisdom during camps, classes, and one-on-one training sessions, during which Winston not only teaches them skills and techniques, but also the game's strategic aspects, ensuring they'll be able to navigate the field like a young Napoleon.
