I wanted to change out of a class that was way too crowded into one that wasn't. So i spoke to this incredibly rude woman named Jennifer, who was more interested in retaining the dollars I'd spent to assist me. The back courts are dusty.

I booked a court to bring a very important client for an evening of tennis. I get there and they rudely tell me I don't have a reservation. I told them I made one, gave my CC# and everything and they were just like "whatever." I called the

I was very disspointed when I played here & especially for the customer service and bad prices. I HIGHLY recommend for you to take a cab to the courts at Sutton Place or Roosevelt Island for nicer courts and an overall better experience.

There is very little room between the baseline & the back wall which is a chain linked fence, so you will barely be able to take a full swing. The facilities look like they have been renovated int he 80s and are not nicely kept. The staff is very crude and not helpful.

Overall - Check out Sutton East Tennis or Roosevelt Island Racquet club.

This is the best little secret in nyc. Been playing here since I moved to the city in 1998 and have seen a great transformation since the new management moved in. The total renovation of locker rooms and courts are amazing and the staff couldn't be nicer. My weekly lessons with Errol are the highlight of my week!

I've been taking lessons there for a few months, and I like it a lot. The instructors are excellent and very helpful. Also, the people I've met area a lot of fun and very friendly. They've recently renovated the locker rooms and lobby area, and it looks nice. The courts are nice (clay courts) and covered upstairs in the winter with a giant bubble. The only down side, is that it was built in the mid 1960's and if the ball hits the base line, there isn't really enough room to return it properly.

Total disappointment. The tennis club was extremely run down, flithy, and the clay courts are a disaster. They are not even level. There are noticeably large bumps, like a small hill, in the middle of the tennis courts. You can't see the baseline when you are serving to the other side. And the distance between the baseline and the chain linked fence is barely 12ft when generally the distance is 21ft. I couldn't do a full swing at the baseline because the racket would make contact with the chain linked fence.

Overall the facility was a dump and I wouldn't even play there for free! That's how bad it is.

The group lessons have been really been helping me to improve my game. Depending on the people that are in the classes it can be a lot of fun, the instructers are super helpful and not bad looking. I had to make sure I registered early but it has been worth it.

Pros: location, friendly staff

I have no idea why this facility got high ratings. The courts, first of all, are not well-maintained. It's like playing on mud. Moreover, Midtown Tennis Club has very poor service, and I've had frequent problems with them in terms of scheduling - they'll say that I'm registered for court time or for lessons, and then they'll say that there was a mistake, and then they'll charge YOU for their error. It's such a turn-off, and if you complain to the staff about any problems, they actually blacklist you. (This happened to a friend of mine.) In short, they're not interested in hearing your opinions.

PROS:
CONS: bad service, poor facilities

If you are looking for initial instruction or some fine tuning for your game, come and talk to the instructors here. You can aways improve, and they are talented individuals dedicated to making that happen. For regular play with your buddies, make sure to get your summer reservations down well in advance, especially mid-week

Chelsea tennis facilities feature eight indoor, air-conditioned courts--with adult and junior classes to improve skill, or just for fun.
