Playing Tennis in NYC Central Park 

(Photo above shows NYC tennis players forming a line EARLY IN THE MORNING, waiting for the Tennis House to open) Do you know that the line starts forming at or before 6am!!! If you get there by 6:20am, your chances of getting a court is very slim.  If you cant get there by at least 6:10am, just FORGETABOUTIT!!!
6am Tennis Crowd in Central Park Tennis Center. Can you wake up that early to play tennis?
Actually if you can, the best time to play tennis in Central Park is from 6:30am to 8am.  The 26 green clay courts are freshly brushed and the air is very nice!!!

Tennis Tip: The toughest day to get a court in NYC Central Park Tennis Center is during the weekends.  However, there are two ways you can get a court without the hassles of waiting in line for long hours and then being told that all the courts were already taken.  One way is to book the court way in advance if you know you are definitely playing that particular weekend.  The second way, is to get to Central Park tennis Center between 6am and 6:30 am and book the court for the particular time/hour you plan to play that day. MORE TIPS Playing TENNIS in NYC Central Park Tennis Center - click here

Tennis fight bubbles over: Courts-cover is sore point
Skala was at Borough Hall to testify against a proposal by a tennis club to put two large bubbles over 10 outdoor tennis courts during the fall and winter so players may continue to use the facilities.

Hard Courts: Playing in the Big Apple by Adam Sachs "Perhaps the most popular public facility is in Central Park, but the fact that the courts are within lobbing distance of some of the most expensive real estate in the world doesn't guarantee a genteel experience. You have to wake up at dawn to snag a court reservation, you return hours later, and you're only allowed to play one hour a day. When your time's up, a bell rings and the changeover is instantaneous. The courteous "go ahead and finish the game" is seldom heard." - from Tennis.com

"I've learned to never give up in tennis and that has helped me in business," Donald Trump from Tennis.com

FELIX MARX's Last Will & Testament bequething $1 Million for Central Park Tennis

-----------------------------

"Tennis sport is slated to be bulldozed and turned into an office complex when the lease runs out in two years.  The waterfront facility in Long Island City, Queens, with the 28 courts, is the second major New York home for tennis that could be closing soon.  The 19 court East River Club, also in Long Island City, is on the real estate shopping block, too.  Three Manhattan facilities, Crosstown Tennis, Wall Street Racquet Club, and Village Tennis Courts, have shut down in the past 2 years." - from Tennis Magazine.

Types of string:
String is made from two types of materials: natural gut, constructed from the muscle layer of beef intestine, and synthetic. Natural gut generally offers better playability and synthetics typically offer improved durability.

String gauge:
Gauge measures the thickness of the string. Thinner strings, from 16 to 17 gauge, deliver better feel and playability. Thicker string, at 15 gauge, provides increased durability.
