William T. Tilden 2nd speaking
of the Indoor Tennis Court in his classic book "My
"...Here it was that everyday all through the fall
and winter of 1919-1920 I worked on my offensive backhand."
The Indoor Tennis Court is located in East Providence, RI. Less than 1 mile from Route 195, and less than 1/2 mile from the Henderson Bridge. We are open to the public but advance notice to rent the court is required. Please feel free to take a look at our website. Play on the tennis court where tennis great Bill Tilden, along with Davis Cup player Arnold W. Jones, developed his backhand in the winter of 1919.
