What are some of the best tennis shops and clubs in NYC?
I've always enjoyed a stroll into P*aragon just north of Union Sq. Park:
You'll have to remove the *
The tennis pro shop in Central Park is pretty good.
Para-gon (sans hyphen) seems to be the best of the New York tennis shops. As well, it has many other departments, so if you play another sport, you're golden there, too.
Grand Central is much better than *******. (For racquets and stuff. For clothes and shoes, try *******>)
Best prop shops & racquet clubs in NYC
In my opinion:
-**** - excellent for custom stringing
-Mason's Tennis Mart - knowledgeable, but expensive
-******* is ok...they have good prices and good selection, but they aren't the most knowledgeable about tennis gear (not to say they don't know anything...just not as much as the previously mentioned pro shops)
-Manhattan Plaza Racquet Club is probably the best (facilities, courts, programs, etc), but it is uber-expensive.
-Roosevelt Island (also expensive, but not as much as MPRC)
if you're looking for cheap courts in great condition, play at the public parks - Riverside 119th Street, and the USTA are the best conditioned courts. There are many other good courts in the public park system as well.
THanks I'll try out these places and I also might try the grass courts at Forest Hills
