What makes the tennis scene in Queens, NY so unique?
Manhattan has the Knicks, Brooklyn has the Nets, The Bronx has the Yankees, and Queens has the US Open (Sorry but aren't ready to jump on the Mets bandwagon). Some of the most iconic moments in tennis history have taken place in Queens, NY. Each July the best players in the World descend on the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows hoping to go down in tennis folklore with past greats such as Arthur Ashe, John McEnroe, or Roger Federer. Being an international sport it is the one opportunity for people all over the country to see such high quality tennis on the grandest stage. If you want to see the best players in the best tournament, Queens is the place to do it.
Though Queens is home to one of the most prestigious tennis events in the world it also boasts a lively tennis scene that us mere mortals can enjoy as well. Between high school tennis courts, tennis courts at St John’s University, and courts at the numerous public parks such as Cunningham Park, there are plenty of places to take tennis lessons or simply play with a friend. Tennis has always been a staple of Queens' identity and we hope to add to that tradition. MyTennisLessons is eager to extend our online and on-court services to students and instructors alike. If you were looking to find a tennis coach to stay in shape, you may be more interested in working with a personal trainer in Queens. Regardless, after you witness an epic 5 setter between two top ten players at Arthur Ashe Stadium and you realize you’ve got that itch to get on the court yourself, you know where to find your tennis fix.
The cost of private tennis lessons can vary depending on factors such as location, level of instruction, and the coach's experience. On average, private tennis lessons are between $45-$65/hr but again, there are many factors when it comes to prices in your area. Package deals and discount codes will also help in reducing the hourly cost of private lessons. It's a good idea to research and compare prices of coaches in your area before committing to lessons.
Depending on what you want to get out of your tennis lessons, should inform your decision on how often to get out on the court. Whether you are a beginner who wants to learn tennis quickly or you are a more advanced player getting ready for a tournament, buying more lessons up front for less per hour might be best. If you just want to try out tennis lessons a smaller lesson package will allow you to try out lessons once or twice a week before committing to more.
Private tennis lessons are the best way to up your game as a tennis player because you have the chance to get 1-on-1 instruction from a qualified tennis coach. A private tennis lesson is a chance to soak up valuable information, get as many reps as possible, and form a relationship with a coach fully invested in your improvement. A group lesson can help you to learn some basics, spend time with friends, and allow you to get a feel for the game of tennis but often does not replicate private lessons from a development standpoint.
It is never too late to start tennis lessons! No matter what age you are, tennis is accessible for anyone. Tennis can be great for kids, former athletes looking to get into something new, someone who is trying to get more active, or anyone in between. Tennis lessons allow you to make mistakes and feel comfortable as a first time tennis player, no matter your age.
You can start tennis lessons at any age or skill level. If you are looking to get your child into tennis most coaches will say if they are able to hold a racquet it is early enough for tennis lessons. Like with most activities, the earlier a child starts playing tennis, the better they will become if they choose to play competitively. But players start playing tennis at various ages and age is no barrier to entry to becoming a solid, or even great, tennis player.
Beginner tennis players will be set up for success as long as they have tennis shoes, athletic wear, and a water bottle. If you do not have a tennis racquet you can discuss your options of borrowing one with your coach but eventually it is best that you purchase a beginner tennis racquet right for you. You will want one not only at lessons but so you can play tennis outside of your lessons. Eventually, once you know you will be playing a lot of tennis you will want a tennis bag with various gear but it is not necessary as a beginner tennis player.
- Athletic shoes you know are comfortable for running around in
- Athletic clothing you are comfortable running around and sweating in
- Your tennis racquet
- A filled water bottle
- A hat depending on how sunny it is and any other weather specific clothes, ie a sweatshirt or leggings for chillier weather
- Not required, but many players will bring a towel or sweatbands to wipe sweat

Triniti focused specifically on improving my technique and form in a way that made perfect sense and put me on the road to improving my overall game. She is patient and her expertise is immediately apparent. I very much look forward to putting into practice everything she was able to teach me in just six lessons and I would not hesitate to book more lessons with Triniti in the near future!- Ryan S.
Scott is a great tennis coach. He has the personality and temperament we were looking for, for our 12 year old son, who started playing tennis in the past year. Scott does a great job of doing drills with our son while troubleshooting his problem areas in his strokes. Scott also does various drills that work on the techniques needed to develop a good all-around game. After each lesson, he also lets me know what my son's strengths were during the lesson and what areas he should work on for the next lesson. Scott's a pleasant guy and is easy...- Donn E.
