    I'll be traveling to NYC next week to see family, contemplating to take a stick to play. Is it worth the trouble? I'm coming from California.

    Check Stadium Tennis in the Bronx or the National Tennis Center in Queens, both accessible by subway and cheap, at least by NYC standards. Sportime on Randall's Island is nice but pricier and hard to reach.

    Thanks, do they match you up or is it a pickup type deal?

    pickup, though Stadium has pros to hit with for $60 or so per hour.

    Gavna, we need you at the RoseGardens. The good guys are leaving in droves, not that there were droves of them, and only the few remain. M,W,F, we get plenty of players, but few better than weak 3.5. T, Th, we get better players, but usually less than 3.

    Dang, I wish I would have known about this a week ago when I was up in NYC. Those courts look awesome from satellite view.

    Does those courts need permit? I think they dont need permit at this time of season right? but are they open?Do you have to reserve the court like the one at NTC or you just walk in like some of the public court?

    The outdoor courts do require a permit, but not during this time of year (December/January). They are public courts.

    I'll check tonight to see if they're locked.

    EDIT: Passed by at 7:30pm and all the lights were out- so didn't bother checking.
