Uncovering hidden tennis court in Grand Central

July 24, 2012 3:18:14 PM PDT
Are you surprised that there could be a tennis court smack dab in the middle of everything ? what about Grand Central Terminal?

If you can find the elevator by Vanderbilt Avenue, and take it to the fourth floor, you will find the hidden court.

While the spot is amazing, it also has a history - it all started way back when two tennis courts were built at the location.

The MTA later reclaimed some of that space, leaving behind enough room for a new court, as well as new practice courts, located on the 5th floor. The courts use a ball machine that is equipped with a retrieval system that allow for constant play.

There is even a small gym, however the attraction is the main court.

Dorothy Sidanbarom plays every day, and says she feels like it is her own private court.

"It's my passion ? it's amazing," she said.

Imagine all of those people going places outside and down below while you are playing ? it is by far one of the most unique tennis courts.

No membership is needed to play, but an hour costs $80 and up.
