Highland Park Tennis Association: Welcome

Welcome to Highland Park Tennis Association, where the Advantage is always yours...

"Never look down on anybody unless you're helping him up." Jesse Jackson

Home of Highland Park Tennis Association, Highland Park straddles the borders of Brooklyn and Queens. It is situated on a high plateau that commands dramatic views of nearby cemeteries, East New York, Woodhaven, the Rockaways, and the Atlantic Ocean. This tennis facility is one of New York City's best kept secrets... a hidden jewel.

The tennis tradition at Highland Park dates back to the early 1900's, when there were 24 red clay courts on two levels. In 1998, the courts on the upper level were converted into 13 hard courts dedicated to the first 13 colonies, where each court bears the name and seal of each colony. The lower level courts were converted into a soccer field and basketball courts. 

In 2012, the Fresh Courts initiative, a partnership between the USTA and American Express, reconfigured the 13 full-size courts into 10 full-size and 8-36 foot courts for 8 and under tennis. Additionally, the 10 full size courts are marked with 60' blended lines for 10 and under tennis. This current transformation was made possible because of the dedication and efforts of the Highland Park Tennis Association's volunteers and the Junior Tennis Program.

Tennis can now be enjoyed by the entire family in this picturesque surrounding from Spring through Fall.  

Come join us and share in the fun ...
