At AceSpace, we know that time is of the essence. Whether you’re scheduling tennis lessons a month in advance, or organizing an impromptu doubles match, you want the process to be quick. After all, if you can book a restaurant, a car, a hotel with just a few clicks–why not a tennis court? 

Founded in 2017, AceSpace is the premier court-booking platform in New York. The app easily locates available tennis courts in your area, eliminating the hassle of Web searches and phone calls. Whatever price, surface or time slot you prefer, AceSpace ensures you get the court you want, every time.

Thanks to its staff of tennis enthusiasts, AceSpace was designed with both players and facilities in mind. We help tennis centers manage their bookings automatically, working as a stand-alone system or in tandem with older technology. We work directly with facility managers, bridging the gap between manual bookings and digitally-oriented players.

Starting this October, our gift to you is a stress-free tennis schedule. Like the best tennis players, AceSpace is fast and reliable, and no matter how busy your life gets, AceSpace is ready to steer you towards the nearest clay, grass or hard surface.

ElSo Athletics 


ElSo is an authentic active lifestyle brand that engages in the design, development, and marketing of athletic socks, apparel and accessory products worldwide. Established in 2012 as a high-performance sock company, ElSo has built a strong reputation among its consumers as one of the highest quality sock makers in the industry. In January 2019, ElSo will be launching its inaugural men’s athletic line. 

ElSo’s sock collections use cutting edge designs paired with solution based features that are supportive, comfortable, and functional for the wearer. ElSo works closely with sock technicians and high level athletes to ensure the continual development of products that work.

In 2018, ElSo began sponsoring junior and professional men’s and women’s tennis players, and plans on increasing the number of sponsored players in 2019. ElSo proudly represents stylish, confident athletes who display and exemplify the term BOLD.
