PLATFORM TENNIS

Platform Tennis, or "paddle" as it is more commonly called, is a very social outdoor sport played mainly in the winter. Platform uses the same scoring and terminology as tennis but on a court about 1/3 of the size. What differentiates platform tennis from traditional tennis is that players use a paddle instead of a racquet and the ball can be played off the "screens" (aka chicken wires) that surround the court.

The greatest thing is that NO tennis or racquet skills are needed to quickly learn, enjoy, and love the game of paddle.  It's fast-paced and fun so come give it a try!

Three And ME

The '3 and Me' Program is a playing lesson in which 3 players play an 8 game pro-set with one of our Paddle Instructors.  During play, the instructor will discuss things like shot selection, court positioning, strategy, and technique as different situations arise during play. Every player in the 3 and Me will play one set with the pro. 

It's a great way to gain a deep understanding of how the game is played and it works for players of any skill level!
