Tennis

Scarsdale Parks, Recreation, and Conservation maintains 26 tennis courts, both Har-Tru clay and all-weather surfaces, which are available to Scarsdale residents and their guests. All courts are available to reserve online. Residents are required to purchase a tennis permit for unlimited access to all courts throughout the season, which runs from April 1 through October 31.

Tennis Lessons and Clinics
Private and group tennis lessons are available to Scarsdale residents throughout the year. During the spring, summer, and fall, weekly lessons and clinics are held outside at the Middle and High School courts. In the winter, SPRC partners with SPORTIME to offer indoor lessons at the Lake Isle location in Eastchester for adults and at the Harbor Island location in Mamaroneck for children.

Tennis Rules

Platform Tennis

Platform Tennis is an outdoor, and traditionally cold weather, racquet sport similar to tennis, played on a court that is about 1/3 of the size of a regulation tennis court. A small, spongy ball and wooden "paddles" allow for a faster pace of play, great for keeping blood moving in colder temperatures. A 12-foot high wall surrounds the court, against which the ball can be hit to remain in play.

SPRC maintains six platform tennis courts, which are available to Scarsdale residents and their guests. All courts are available to reserve online. Residents are required to purchase a platform tennis permit for unlimited access throughout the season, which runs from November 1 through March 31. Instructional clinics are offered for adults and children throughout the playing season.

Pickleball

Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong using paddles and a plastic ball with holes. Find a full description of pickleball, with rules of play here. In the spring and summer, SPRC offers clinics for adults and children on our platform tennis courts. A pickleball permit, valid during the pickleball season from April 1 through October 31, is required to play or to make court reservations online. In the winter, indoor clinics are also available in collaboration with SPORTIME.
