Description

Village Voice's Description

It's the ultimate extension of the big fishasmall pool theory. How do you become one of the top 1000 court tennis players in the world? By picking up one of the lopsided wooden rackets and hitting one of the rock-hard, hand-stitched balls. According to educated estimates, there are maybe 500 players of this funky, old game worldwide. But don't worry about the sport going the way of the passenger pigeon: Henry VIII was playing during the beheading of Anne Boleyn. Manhattan's very private Racquet and Tennis Club houses two of about 30 U.S. courts, and most of the others are within driving distance.

Tips from foursquare

  • Concert Ticket Agency on 10/17/12

    Extremely hard to get in (impossible if you're a lady), but it offers a glimpse into Park Avenue's glamorous past. Try the sidecar.
