The West Side Tennis Club - 1892-2016
The West Side Tennis Club often surprises first time visitors. It is minutes from the bustle of midtown Manhattan on the E|F|M|R subway lines. The Long Island Railroad stops in Forest Hills regularly, and the Club is situated between NYC's two airports: LaGuardia and JFK International. In the midst of this fast-paced NYC life, the Club is an oasis of green velvet lawns and Tudor architecture located in Forest Hills Gardens.
The historical Forest Hills Stadium is hosting a new series of musical performances at the Stadium, reviving a tradition that started in 1961 and continued through the 90’s. During that time The West Side Tennis Club hosted such popular performers as The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Diana Ross, Simon & Garfunkel and Bob Dylan to name a few. In the summer of 2013 the stadium re-opened its doors with the band Mumford & Sons. Since then we have had Zac Brown Band, Drake, Lil Wayne, Ed Sheeran, James Taylor, Van Morrison, and Alabama Shakes just to name a few. Be sure to check for upcoming concerts in 2016!
