I love tennis but unfortunately I don't play very well (unless we're talking video games), which is why I do love to watch the sport and appreciate the precision, strategies and athletics involved in the activity. In anticipation of the upcoming events scheduled for August, I decided that today's turtle run would be around the tennis stadiums in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.
The US Tennis Association (USTA) hosts the US Open at the Arthur Ashe Stadium and the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center every August in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. The planes are re-routed not to fly over at that time, which is something that only a native New Yorker would notice. The absence of noise is always invigorating during a zen moment while enjoying a slow jog. If you stand at the gates of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, you can actually see a lovely view of the Unispere and the Court of States. East of the Unisphere are the Soccer Fields where most kids run to play a pick up game after using the tennis courts, which are open to the public throughout the year. There are indoor and outdoor courts and programs for adults, youths, and seniors. You can find out more information regarding events and available programs from the USTA website here.
Meanwhile, here is some eye candy from my turtle run. Enjoy!
