Update: July 5, 2020
Tennis Innovators is excited to be back on court as of July 8th 2020. We have great lessons and programs lined up for our adult and junior players. Welcome back!

Hello TI Families and Players!

We hope you have all been staying safe and healthy during these trying times and have been able to enjoy time with your families.

As we approach the scheduled start dates for many of our locations we wanted to reach out with this important update for our registered players.

While all of our indoor locations have been postponed until further notice, we are currently working on our two (2) City Parks locations and John Jay College.

Riverside Park – 119th Street, UWS, Manhattan

Astoria Park – Astoria, Queens

John Jay College – 59th Street UWS, Manhattan

Based on communication with the New York City Park Department we are still waiting to receive our official start date, and will be updating everyone accordingly through an e-mail and an update on our websites main page.

Tennis Innovators is uniquely positioned to offer outdoor lessons responsibly and safely in very small numbers. As we do not have a lobby/meeting area and can avoid any necessary contact between client, coaches and equipment, it is our belief that we will be able to safely offer a healthy outlet for our clients.

Defer Registration For Upcoming Sessions

Based on our registration policy, Tennis Innovators is happy to have players defer the Spring 2020 Session and to credit the amount paid to your families’ Tennis Innovators account.

We appreciate all of your support and understand that some of you have left the city indefinitely, and may not be able to participate for the Spring 2020 session.

The amount paid can be applied to any of our programs in the future, and is transferrable to any members of your family or friends.
