Sportime Randall's Island Tennis Center is the finest public tennis facility in New York City. When the expansion project (the "Annex") is completed, during the cold weather season, the entire complex shall be the largest indoor tennis facility in the world.
The Annex includes 9 tennis courts within 3 fabric frame structures. The tennis court structures have operable panels along the east and west sides that would be raised during warmer weather to provide natural cross-ventilation and to increase the visibility into the tennis courts. The Annex also includes a public support building, which has reception, viewing areas to the courts, vending machines, a facility administration office, a multipurpose room, restrooms, and equipment/storage rooms, in a lightweight steel frame structure with steel cladding and with HVAC systems. The project includes improvements to other existing parking areas, including restriping of parking spaces and pedestrian pathway, lighting, and circulation improvements. Landscaping and a new rain garden for stormwater retention purposes are also part of improvements of the site.
