Alley Pond Tennis Center is now APTC and has moved to a new location in Queens College. I played for the first time at this facility and was very happy with the condition and the lighting of the courts. Lighting is super important it can make or break the indoor experience. Pricing is fair and they now offer a yearly membership which has some nice perks of free parking, advance booking and discounted courts.
This place is the best. However, the indoor needs a better ac system. Because my last tennis place, when we would go indoors, it would be ice cold, and nice. But overall, very nice!
Indoors court surface is very well maintained and the lighting is good, however, they are extremely hot as they don't appear to have a proper ventilation/AC system. The worst part of the Queens College Tennis center was the booking process and you will get different answers to questions, depending on who you get on the phone. The staff seems uninterested in attracting new players with their less than welcoming attitude and inflexibility (court 4-6pm, score 40-15 set point at 6:06pm the attendant came to chase us out even though there was a long conversation prior to taking the court and no one else was there), which may explain why all the courts were empty on a Saturday afternoon. Will use only as last resort!
Taking beginning tennis lessons at Queens College Indoor Tennis Court will be fun for any newcomer! They have different sessions morning, evening and definitely Saturday or Sunday sessions. The instructors are friendly and you will feel as if it was more of a community to be altogether on the weekend. The prices for the sessions will vary depending on what day and times. Pro-Instructor's are great, prices are descent for lessons Con- Not enough sessions to work on Tennis moves
Great indoor courts, facilities are nice and usually free courts available. Has a private feel to it and the prices are good for NYC
