Platform Tennis

Information

PLAY OUTSIDE ALL YEAR LONG!

A fun, social, and year-round sport! Platform tennis is an outdoor racquet sport for any age that combines elements of tennis and racquetball. The game, which is mainly a doubles sport, is played with a solid paddle and a spongy ball. The court is 1/3 the size of a tennis court and surrounded by screens that let players keep the ball in play after it hits off the court and then the screens.

It is simple to get started—all you need to do is show up at the courts any Saturday at 12:00pm with a pair of sneakers to participate in our FREE Clinics. Our instructors will provide you with all the equipment and instructions you will need to get started.

Our 4 courts are located next to the tennis courts at the Manklin Meadows Racquet Sports Complex.
