The first total tennis experience
sized just for kids.

Court 16 is a private kids' tennis club developed by an international network of tennis experts and cultural creators. We created the club with a vision for a modern approach to the game. With perfectly kid-sized courts and a community built on education and empowerment, kids are given the right foundation to fall in love with the game, and have a total tennis experience. Court 16 gets its name from court number 16 at founder Anthony Evrard's tennis club in his hometown of Brussels, Belgium. It inspired him to develop "a blueprint for life," cultivating qualities of discipline, focus and fair play that have benefited all aspects of his life.

 

World Class Facilities

In the heart of Brooklyn’s culture-and-fitness corridor in Boerum Hill,  just minutes away from the Barclays Center and BAM, Court 16 is the first facility of its kind in the U.S.

  • Five permanent USTA-sanctioned 36' tennis courts — built at an optimal size for child athletes.
  • One 60' tennis court (we like to call it "The Big Court") for advanced junior, senior, and adult players. 
  • Premier Court® surfacing is the most advanced cushioning surface available. Kids enjoy more traction for optimum performance, and impact-absorbing cushions are easy on growing joints.
  • Bright, architecturally-progressive interior to excite the imagination.
