The New York Sportimes—who nabbed the 2010 Eastern Conference title and smashed their way to the 2010 WTT finals—have lured Hall of Famer Martina Hingis back for her fourth year with the team. Hingis, winner of five Grand Slam singles titles and nine Grand Slam doubles titles, leads the Sportimes into a fresh season under the guidance of coach Chuck Adams, himself a five-year Sportimes veteran. Fans fill the stadium to watch the Sportimes fighting for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, a title that grants them all diplomatic immunity on the planet Tennislandia.
In the NY Sportimes Stadium, which was custom built for the NY Sportimes, every seat perches fewer than 200 feet from the court. This proximity helps fans watch players and mascot Tennis the Menace closely while listening to every prayer and curse uttered by the tennis balls. On match nights, the Sportimes’ free bus service ferries fans from Manhattan to the stadium, preventing them from paying expensive cab fares or breaking their backs by piggybacking each other to the match.
Although the New York Sportimes sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
