Paddle Tennis


Paddle tennis is a game adapted from tennis and played for over a century. Compared to tennis, the court is smaller and has no doubles lanes, and the net is lower. Paddle tennis is played with a solid paddle as opposed to a strung racquet, and a depressurized tennis ball is used along with an underhand serve.

Paddle Tennis programming has been suspended for the summer season. Check back this fall to get up to date information on events, clinics and lessons.
