ADULT PLATFORM TENNIS

Platform, by the nature of the game is a social sport. In addition to everyday availability to find players to get onto the court with, we regularly have organized events focusing on the social and fun aspects of the game rather than competition. Male or Female Platform players of all abilities interested in competitive play can join one of our many teams competing in the western PA Platform Tennis Association Leagues. >>more

Junior platform tennis

The number one reason kids want to play a sport is to have fun. Our emphasis is on PLAYING and FUN, and keeping kids active and involved through a variety of games and activities! The children have a great time while learning physical skills, sportsmanship, social skills and a healthy lifestyle all at the same time. We have kids "Play to Learn", rather than "Learn to Play." Research has shown that early, positive experience in sports creates a lifelong commitment to an active lifestyle. >>more
