The US Open is in full swing, and NYC is hosting plenty of ways to celebrate the tournament, from playing a match at Rockefeller Center to NYC’s first floating tennis court. And now, a one-of-a-kind tennis experience has opened up at the Rooftop at Pier 17.
The full-sized rooftop court will be open for free play to the public on the mornings of September 7 – September 8 on a first-come, first-served basis. Whether you’re a novice or a professional, all skill levels are welcome. Plus, tennis balls and racquets will be available to borrow on-site.
“New Yorkers can play tennis in the heart of the Seaport while also enjoying unparalleled views of the river, Brooklyn Bridge and the city skyline from The Rooftop at Pier 17,” said Jennifer Abt, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at Howard Hughes.
Chase Sapphire, Heineken, and Grey Goose will activate additional play times. See them below:
- Thursday, September 7, Friday, September 8, Saturday, September 9: Chase Sapphire Reserve cardmembers can get court access from 8am – 10pm and reserve clinics with tennis legends.
- Wednesday, September 6 & Friday, September 8: Games, activations and public free play slots will be hosted by Heineken
“The Seaport welcomes visitors looking for exciting ways to experience one of New York’s most historic neighborhoods, including a multitude of outstanding dining and entertainment options along the waterfront. There is no better way to close out summer than picking up a racket and getting a rally going on our one-of-a-kind court,” said Abt.
