The Sixth Annual Battle of the Boroughs was a two-month adult recreational tournament played throughout New York City parks, culminating in the finals at Flushing Meadows, Corona Park.

The tournament, presented by USTA Eastern and with the support of City Parks Tennis, featured some of the best team tennis in the area as neighborhood pride was put on the line with teams from the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Staten Island.

“The Battle of the Boroughs Tennis Challenge allows adult players in our parks to again compete in a friendly atmosphere and represent their own neighborhoods and boroughs,” said Mike Silverman, Director of Sports for City Parks Foundation.

In the end, it was the team from Queens who claimed the Battle of the Boroughs title, and will hold the city’s bragging rights until next year’s tournament.
