Though canines love tennis for its bouncy yellow balls, humans appreciate the freedom to bark loudly with each swing and bury their favorite rackets all over the court. Become a tennis beast with today's Groupon: for $999, you get a nonequity family summer membership at Maplewood Swim and Tennis Club (a $2,254.88 value). Maplewood opens for the summer on May 28.
Maplewood, a private club 25 minutes outside of New York City, gives urbanites respite from the concrete jungle with a combination of recreational activities, wooded copses, and rolling hills. Get aquatic relief from the summer heat at the outdoor swimming center with its two dedicated lap lanes, a covered water slide, full-time lifeguards, and a monitored kiddie pool. Volleyers of varying levels can perfect backhands, forehands, and the McEnroe tantrum on one of four DecoTurf tennis courts, and take pointers from the on-staff tennis pro. Youngsters can take it to the paint on the half-court basketball court or caper about on the full-sized playground as parents take advantage of free WiFi or test their game-playing prowess on the shuffleboard court or Ping-Pong table. Famished fun-seekers can nosh at the kid-friendly snack bar, nibble lunch from home, or have some kimchi airlifted from Korea.
Maplewood restricts membership to 185 families, keeping parking spaces available and fostering a feeling of community, and hosts Fourth of July and Labor Day barbecues in addition to a few evening social events and a raucous Saturnalia-in-July celebration.
