As the aces tear up the courts at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, you can practice your own swing – and so much more – at the CityView Racquet Club, a private, members-only facility.
Established in 2008, the Long Island City club, conveniently located just minutes away from Manhattan, offers squash and tennis programs for juniors and adults looking to develop their game.
“The owners of CityView Racquet Club recognized that the number of tennis facilities in NYC was diminishing with the increased value of real estate,” said Christina Lenahan, club director. “To ensure that our tennis courts would be protected, we found our home atop the iconic Swingline stapler building, catering to the tennis, squash and fitness needs of our local residents and neighbors.”
Aside from handling general inquiries, membership enrollment, events, marketing, and advertising, Lenahan also makes some time for squash.
“You’ll certainly see me taking advantage of our amazing squash courts,” she said.
The Racquet Club is known for its state-of-the-art fitness equipment, spa, and event space, which includes a bar/lounge and rooftop deck for custom parties, steam and sauna, ping pong, Wi-Fi, as well as complimentary valet.
“CityView has an exceptional teaching staff and has built a reputation as the premier tennis/squash club for adult and junior instruction in the New York City area,” said Lenahan. “We also provide tennis clinics and partner match-up services for both tennis and squash.”
As the club continues to grow, CityView continues to develop new programming opportunities for members – both new and old.
“We are looking forward to creating more of a stronghold here in Queens,” said Lenahan. “We are excited to be a part of this community and plan to grow along with Long Island City, and in the next few years, we foresee that CityView will be recognized by all Queens residents as providing various services from events to racquet sports.
