It's officially summer, so let's get out and do something fun. Never played tennis, no problem! You'll learn the basics to stop hitting that tennis ball over the fence. Play tennis already? Then you'll learn even more tips to ace your opponent.
Throughout these sessions, you will learn/practice: Ground strokes, serving, volleys, overheads, lobs, footwork and strategies. Each session will focus on different aspects and will provide ample time to practice too! In addition to improving your game, you will also get to meet new people and have an enjoyable time. The sessions are both social and technique oriented.
Normally a one hour session goes for $35, but we're getting it for $20. Random Events has also secured an unlimited amount of group tennis lessons during a 30 day time frame offering over 17 classes per month for $149, typically a $340 value. Just another benefit for being part of Random Events!

The offer is effective for 30 days and rain days don't extend the deal. It is good for 30 days from the date you initially RSVP and expires October 1. Additional classes will be added soon.

DIRECTIONS BY SUBWAY - (Don't follow Google Directions)
You can arrive off the 181 St or 168 St subway stops. See directions below:
Arriving Via the A Train and Exiting off at 181 Street:
1. Take the A train, SIT IN THE BACK OF THE TRAIN, to the 181 St. subway stop.
2. Start walking west on 181 St. for a several blocks, passing Pinehurst Avenue then reaching 181 St. which forks slightly to the right with a new name called: Plaza Lafayette.
3. Make a right and walk about 1 minute on Riverside until you reach on your left hand side, a light green pedestrian bridge.
4. Make a left turn onto the bridge and walk across it. The ramp down from the bridge will zigzag and put you on the pedestrian walkway.
5. Continue going on the walk path for about 3 minutes.
6. The walk path will fork slightly to the right and head north for a short time. It will do 2 things, go along the highway then underneath the highway. The walk path will start to magically go in the proper direction to the tennis courts, Southbound.
7. You will go under the George Washington Bridge and continue on the walk path and see the courts in the next few minutes. See you on Court #9.
It will take about 15 minutes to commute from the 181 Street subway stop to court #9, so give yourself enough time and account for the weekend subway schedule.
Arriving Via the A , C or #1 Train and Exiting off at 168 Street and Broadway:
1) Take the “A” Express or “1” or "C" local trains to 168 st and Broadway stop.
2) Walk to 165 St and Broadway and make a right on to Riverside Drive.
3) Make sure you cross the street and walk on the sidewalk of Riverside Drive going north.
4) If you see a Psychiatric Building on the left and see several overpasses in front of you, you are going in the proper direction, keep walking.
5) WALK ABOUT 50 YARDS….CROSSING THE MEDIANS AND STAY FOCUSED ON THE SIDEWALK AHEAD.
6) Once you have walked under the 3rd overpass that has a metal fence on the left you will reach the end of the sidewalk towards three “Do Not Enter” signs.. You will see a ramp where cars are exiting off the West Side Highway from and you will also see three “Wrong Way “signs on the left and one "Do Not Enter" on the right. This is referring to cars and this is the direction you want to take. Cross the median (exit ramp) and walk straight towards the second and third “Wrong Way” signs and you will see a walk path shortly thereafter in between these two signs. Take that path over a walkway bridge and when you go down the stairs make a right and continue following the path passing through some bushes and trees.
7) Go down the last set of stairs and make a right walking to the beautiful tennis courts with amazing views of the George Washington Bridge and River.
8) Walk past the first several courts and go to court #9. The court numbers are written on the inside of the tennis court fences.
9) Walk to the last courts, the ones that are closest to the Bridge.
It will take about 15-20 minutes to walk to the tennis courts so give yourself enough time and account for the weekend subway schedule.
