Construction of the Cary Leeds Center for Tennis and Learning

Construction of the Cary Leeds Center for Tennis and Learning Construction of the Cary Leeds Center for Tennis and Learning Construction of the Cary Leeds Center for Tennis and Learning



Crotona Park, Bronx
A Project of the Department of Parks & Recreation and the New York Junior Tennis League
Peter Gluck and Partners Architects

The new flagship for the New York Junior Tennis League, the Cary Leeds Center will host local, national, and international tournaments and provide free lessons and academic enrichment to New York City's public school students. The Center boasts two sunken tournament courts with spectator seating, 20 standard courts, and a multipurpose clubhouse. The clubhouse is composed of a series of angular planes overlaid to create enclosed and open-air spaces with views of the adjacent courts. To lessen its presence in the landscape, the clubhouse is set below grade, opening onto the sunken courts, thereby reducing the massing visible from Crotona Avenue.
