The Riverside Clay Tennis Association (RCTA) is a non-profit affiliate of the Riverside Park Conservancy. The ten beautiful, well-maintained, red clay tennis courts set along the Hudson River in Riverside Park at 96th Street are public courts surrounded by flower gardens and lush lawns. They are a part of the New York City Park and Recreation public tennis court system and they are maintained and operated by the RCTA.
The courts are open to the public. They are free to anyone with a New York City Parks season tennis permit or a New York City Parks single play ticket. Anyone without a permit or single play ticket can pay $15 at the gate for a day pass.
