Har-tru courts in bubbles during winter months

Westside is Har-tru.

They have the old bubble which has 4 courts and the new bubble which is all the way in the back that has 6 courts. Surface is kind of crude since it usually never groomed when we play.

The last time I went there, they made me park in the back lot which is dark and scary!!! You can try to play dumb and try getting into the front lot which is much more warmer feeling. It’s still a long walk to the back courts. Suggest everyone get there 30 min to spare to figure out where they’re going if you’ve never been there. Do not park in the street since your car will be booted.

WSTC has a parking lot that you get in through a street called Tennis Place. I think the best way is to take Queens Blvd to Continental Ave (71st ST) Go under the Long Island Railroad train bridge and make a right on Dartmouth. From Dartmouth make a right turn onto Tennis Place. The Parking lot is on the left near the end of Tennis Place. You can only get to Tennis Place (one way street) from Dartmouth.
