Passport Membership

The Roosevelt Island Racquet Club (RIRC) Advantage Passport Membership provides all of the benefits of a regular RIRC membership, plus membership at all Advantage Tennis Clubs: Manhattan Plaza Racquet Club (MPRC), RIRC and New York Tennis Club (NYTC). In addition you get to PLAY FREE this summer at RIRC and NYTC!

You will also have year-round membership privileges at MPRC, giving you access to 23 courts, top notch programming, and full privileges at Manhattan Plaza Health Club, one of the finest health clubs and day spas in New York City.
An Advantage Passport Membership requires a one year commitment and costs $160 per month, only $25 more per month than an Individual RIRC membership. We encourage members to pay monthly using our auto-pay plan, but you can choose instead to pay $1920 per year, $300 more than your RIRC membership.

We offer other passport memberships, including:

  • Couples Passport, $245/month or $2,940/year
  • Junior Passport (21 or under), $95/month
  • Junior Passport add-on (21 or under and part of an adult membership), $70/month

With an average savings of $35 per court hour, plus free court time in the summer, anyone planning to play once a week or more will save money with a Passport Membership. When you add the value of the MPHC membership (over $1000 per year) and the other benefits, Passport Membership is a fantastic deal for active tennis players. Better yet, the more you play the more you save!

We will set you up with your new membership right away – just contact Steve O’Keefe at sokeefe@advantagetennisclubs.com or 212.935.0250 ext 812.

2016 Summer Junior Membership

We’ve designed a Summer Junior Membership which will allow juniors at Roosevelt Island Racquet Club to play unlimited tennis at a very reasonable price. Here are the details.

  • Summer Junior Members may reserve one hour per day at no charge. The only restriction is that the reservation must be after Noon.
  • If there are courts available after your reserved hour, you may stay on the court for unlimited play at no additional charge. We will, however, not turn lights on for unlimited play.
  • Reservations may be made one week in advance.
  • The cost is $160 per person for one month. Or, pay $350 now and get the entire summer from June 27 through September 11. This membership is not available for shorter periods. (e.g., one week) The one month membership may not be split into shorter segments.
  • If someone plays with a Summer Junior Member and does not have the membership, they pay their share of the applicable court fee for ALL of the time they are on the court.
  • For private lessons or hittings, Summer Junior Members pay the member rate for the court plus the pro fee no matter what time the lesson is or when the lesson was booked.
  • The Summer Junior Membership is available from June 27 through September 11.
  • Summer Junior Members must be age 18 or Under.

We feel this a great way to play lots of tennis this summer without spending lots of money.
