One of the most popular winter activities in Garden City is the fast paced game of platform tennis. Our Community Park features four R.J. Reilly Aluminum Courts equipped for day and night play.
Many different “flights” play out of Community Park in both the men’s and women’s divisions of the Long Island Platform Tennis Association and Long Island Interclub Platform Tennis League. The Department of Recreation and Parks also offers open play and instructional programs. Stop by the Clubhouse to purchase your platform tennis balls. For further information please call the Community Park Clubhouse at (516) 483-2525.
Adjacent to the courts is our clubhouse facility that provides players with indoor and deck viewing. The building is also equipped with changing rooms, rest rooms, showers, a 52 inch cable Plasma TV, and vending machines. On the deck of the courts we have red wood tables, outdoor furniture and two patio heaters.
All beginners and advanced beginners are invited to attend and learn the basics of Platform Tennis. The hour and a half lesson and game play will be conducted for seven weeks in late fall and early spring. For further information on this program please call the Community Park Office at (516) 483-2525.
The Department of Recreation and Parks will no longer accept cash payments for program registrations, rentals, balls, and contracts at our Administrative Office or for platform tennis and tennis at Community Park. Checks and credit cards (no AmEx) will continue to be accepted.
