Private Lessons at 119th Street

Up your game this season with some one-on-one instruction from coaches Allison and Steven!  Located in Riverside Park right down the staircase from 119th Street and Riverside Drive, the 119th Street Tennis Courts boast ten recently resurfaced hardcourts.  This lush and secluded spot in Morningside heights is a great option for some variety, although we never get tired of red clay of course.

Private lessons are $75.00 per hour. For semi-private lessons, the cost increases by $30 per extra player. (2 players - $105; 3 players - $135; 4 Players - $165). 4 total players is the maximum. Extra players must pay the additional fee upon arrival to the lesson by Venmo or Zelle.
