Platform Tennis

Platform Tennis Program at The Chapel Hill Tennis Club

Platform Tennis is an American racquet sport enjoyed by players young and old and is easy to learn. This sport is played at public or private tennis clubs or in backyards at both recreational levels and highly competitive, and was created to be enjoyed outdoors in cold weather. This unique appeal attracts people who desire fresh air, competition, and social engagement, all on a chilly winter's night.

All levels, including new players, encouraged to come outdoors this winter to experience paddle excitement, fun, exercise, and camaraderie. Demo paddles available (sharpen your tennis volley, mind, and reflexes for spring tennis). .
