A great way to socialize and stay fit in the winter months!
The platform tennis season officially starts in October and runs through April. However, members may play any time during the year. During the fall and winter, there will be several tournaments. They will be organized to provide even competition. Depending on the number of entries, play will be divided into beginners, intermediate and advanced. There will be women’s scrambles, women’s doubles, men’s scrambles, men’s doubles, mixed doubles and other such organized play as interest warrants.
Reserved dates and times for league and group play can be found on our calendar. For evening and weekend play, court reservations may be made for one hour only on a specific court. Open play is permitted and courts change on the hour. Members who have formed groups to play on a regular basis during the season may reserve courts in advance for the entire season, by arranging for a time with the Paddle Tennis Chairperson (Scott Speier, (301) 468-5657).
