New York Junior Tennis & Learning is Bubbling with Pride in Crotona Park this Fall Season

photo 5This week marks the opening of the indoor season at the Cary Leeds Center for Tennis & Learning with the bubbles going up at Crotona Park for the first time.

The two 5-court bubbles were inflated earlier this month at our flagship facility and will remain on site until after the winter season concludes in April. This allows players to practice and compete year-round, and not just during the warmer months.

“Since opening its doors in June, the Cary Leeds Center has become a destination for players of all ages in the South Bronx and beyond,” said Deborah Antoine, President and CEO of NYJTL. “Colder weather shouldn’t mean that on-court instruction ends. Instead, these bubbles allow our programming to take place 365 days a year.”

BubbleThe $26.5 million Cary Leeds Center opened this June as a result of decades of planning, and a commitment by public and private partners, to create a destination that will touch the lives of an estimated 30,000 students in the South Bronx. NYJTL provides innovative and high-quality programming that helps children grow healthier, smarter, stronger, more self-confident, and become successful on and off the court at the Center, as well as throughout New York City.

NYJTL offers junior programs, adult clinics, lessons and seasonal court time, in addition to free community tennis programs and advanced training programs at the Cary Leeds Center.

    Hi from up north,

    A group of +/- 40 student-athletes (13 to 17 years old) from Montreal would like to play friendly tennis games with youngsters from Manhattan on September 3rd and 4th, 2016. Would you be interested to play our students?

    Of course, you are more than welcomed to visit us in Montreal during the Rogers Cup in July. In addition to attend good professional games, we can find Canadian players to match up with your athletes in friendly games along with an interesting sightseeing program.

    Waiting to hearing from you soon.

    I hope you can understand my FrenchGlish…

    Best regards,

    Phone : 450-473-9560
