Tennis is a great part of Nassau's rich history. The Nassau Bowl was the major prize at the Nassau Invitational, an annual tournament that was a main stop on the U.S. Amateur Tennis Tour. Inscribed on the Nassau Bowl are all the names of tennis greats, including Don Budge, Jack Kramer, Bobby Riggs and Bill Tilden.
Nassau and its lawn tennis courts were the envy of the other clubs in the area for they often brought players here to prepare for National Championships at Forest Hills. Fred Baggs, Charlie Mattmann and Chuck McKinley have all played at Nassau as members. Arthur Ashe, Rod Laver, John McEnroe and Vitas Gerulitis all played at Nassau, attracted by the outstanding courts and country club atmosphere.
Members enjoy an outstanding Racquets Program at Nassau. Our 12 Har-Tru Tennis Courts take center stage in the summer season, but our 4 paddle courts, and indoor squash courts allow members to remain active year round. In addition, our new 3 court Indoor Tennis Facility is open from October through April. The Racquets Program has been headed up by legendary Professional Tim Mangan for over 30 years.
