Carefree Racquet Club is Long Island’s premier indoor tennis club. Carefree offers seven indoor tennis courts, two racquetball courts and a half-court basketball court.

League Coordinator Debbie Cichon offers adult singles, doubles and team doubles leagues that are always on level to insure you a good game every time you play. Carefree has many USTA teams in the Adult, Senior, Mixed-Doubles and Tri-Level Leagues. For those new to the game or just want to improve, Carefree offers two 14-week sessions of learn and play groups coordinated by Louis Vallejo. Players get an hour lesson each week, along with 90 minutes of practice time each week.

For players looking for a more relaxed social atmosphere, Karen Guigliano hosts parties on Friday/Saturday nights where food is served, and Karen arranges all games for the night. Jean Tanklowitz, Senior Program Coordinator, has many retirees who simply have a flexible schedule, playing Monday through Thursday in the afternoon. All games are arranged by Jean.

For junior players, Ben Marks, Carefree’s Director of Tennis, coordinates the Junior Development Program with two 14-week sessions starting at the age of five and running through the age of 18. Children can take group, semi-private or private lessons and get practice time and ladder match play as well. Ben also runs a high-school prep program and an Elite program. 

Carefree is very proud of its QuickStart tot program for children ages three- to five-years-old. This adorable program uses all the props to keep the children’s attention and is unmatched.

Carefree Racquet Club is managed by Kathy Miller, who is also the Long Island USTA Adult League Coordinator. Kathy, along with her assistant manager, Pat McIlwee, pride themselves on the organization and smooth running of the best indoor Club on Long Island that has never and continues to not charge membership fees.

So if you are looking to join a program or just rent a court now and then, we would love to see you at Carefree!
