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). .

2020-2021 Platform Tennis Season November-February

Because of the pandemic, CHTC will not be offering large paddle socials or league play organized by captains through at least December.  
In addition to player organized games, there are other options for playing:
1) Groups of players interested in a regular weekly game, may as a convenience have a court automatically reserved through December (this season only)
2) Jim Walsh is organizing Friendly Paddle with Greensboro Country Club.  Both home and away matches planned.  GCC has intermediate and advanced players to match up against us.  Please contact Jim if you are interested
3)  Singles Ladder League - Interested players please contact Rich Green  (Singles may be played either full court singles lines or cross court doubles lines)
4)  Doubles Ladder League - Interested doubles teams please contact Rich Green
January / February we plan to offer one or more CHTC member paddle tournaments for both doubles and singles.  
The APTA Tournament may or may not take place this season.
Stayed tuned for more paddle offerings announcements after the holidays.
