About the Center
Columbia University's Dick Savitt  Tennis Center is the home court for the Men and Women's varsity teams. The center is also available for use by Columbia University alumni, faculty, staff, parents, students and anyone working in one of the Hospitals affiliated with Columbia.  Unaffiliated players may be sponsored by one of the members.  The center has 6 cushioned hard courts, all of which are covered by a state of the art air dome.  Each court has a blue surface that makes the tennis ball easy to see, and the lighting has been called by some tennis professionals as one of the best in the world.  The Tennis Center is located in a beautifully landscaped area of Baker Field ( 218th street and Broadway) which overlooks the Hudson and Harlem rivers. Parking is available on premises and the Tennis Center is easily accessible from the 215th street stop of the I.R.T. #1 train. It is a 10 minute walk from the subway station to the Center.
