Knickerbocker Field Club was an historic tennis clubhouse located in Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York, New York. It was built in 1892 and was the sole surviving building associated with the Tennis Court development until 1988, when it was partially destroyed by fire. It was razed in 1992 with the approval of the Landmark Preservation Commission due to lack of funds for restoration.[2]

It was a long, two story Colonial Revival style building sheathed in clapboard and shingles. It had a gambrel roof and featured a deep porch supported by Doric order columns.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
