The USTA Training Center - East is located at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (NTC) in Flushing, N.Y., one of the largest public tennis facilities in the world. Operated by the USTA for the City of New York, the facility opened in 1978 when the USTA moved the US Open from the West Side Tennis Club in nearby Forest Hills.
The NTC is a tennis welcome center for the world.
Training Center-East (TCE) opened its doors on Jan. 13, 2010, for high performance tennis players. Our goal is to work with the American Tennis Familyand operate a high level developmental program for juniors working with their primary coaches. We presently run both a transitional program (all home schooling must be arranged separately by the interested parties), and on Feb. 11, 2013, we introduced an after-school Feeder Program.
Both programs fall under the TCE umbrella. Generally, we hold two open tryouts annually for the Feeder Program, one in the spring and the the other in late fall, with applications posted in advance.
The Feeder Program is considered year-round but is broken down into sessions based on the NTC Programs calendar with additional daytime summer hours offered from late June through August.
