Platform Tennis is an American racquet sport enjoyed by thousands of people of all ages. It is the only racquet sport that players can enjoy outdoors in cold weather. This unique appeal attracts people who desire fresh air, competition and social engagement – all on a chilly winter’s day or night.
The game is played on an aluminum deck about 1 /3 the size of a tennis court and is surrounded by a 12′ high superstructure with 16-gauge “chicken wire” fencing which allows play off the walls, as in racquetball and squash. Players often refer to platform tennis as “paddle”.
