Please note that this parking lot is only available when the Yankees are not playing at Yankee Stadium. In the event that the Yankees have a home playoff game in the next few weeks, we recommend that you take public transportation (the 2,4,5,B,D or Metro North Train) or park your car at the Gateway Shopping Center.

Temporary Clubhouse Open

In October, we set up our temporary clubhouse at the entrance to the courts. This temporary clubhouse will be in place until the clubhouse renovations are completed over the next several months. When complete, the new clubhouse will include a pro shop, café, lounge areas, bathrooms, showers, and a wifi area where children can do their homework. We appreciate your patience while we complete the building renovations which will not affect play on the tennis courts inside the dome.
