The Season So Far

This current season, we have over 90 members including several new members in each League.  Members ranging in age from 21 to over 70 are playing in leagues scheduled in the daytime and evenings Monday through Friday.  Several unofficial ‘pickup leagues’ still keep our courts busy during unscheduled periods.  As we have all come to realize, playing Platform Tennis is a great form of exercise and a good way to socialize during the cooler nights of fall and winter.   It is rewarding to spend time in the fresh air away from the couch … and amazing to realize just what our bodies can tolerate.  

To date, we have had several social “Scrambles” where we all have the opportunity of enjoying even more “Paddle”, food and camaraderie.  The next Scramble is the Men’s Kaos … to be held on Saturday January 14th, 2017.
