Depending on which center you choose, courts may be lighted for night play; you may take professional or group lessons; join leagues for tournament play; have your racquet restrung or buy equipment.

The U.S. Tennis Association's Player Development Program and the National Junior Tennis Team are now headquartered at Crandon Park Tennis Center, home of the Sony Ericsson Open, the world's fifth largest professional tennis tournament. Underprivileged youngsters can take advantage of special programs that provide lessons, equipment and lunch.
