What is FPTC?

FPTC stands for Fonthill Platform Tennis Club which is located at 1120 Haist St. in Fonthill, Ontario.  For over 43 years the Club has provided healthy access to the unique sport of Platform Tennis, a racquet sport that is played outdoors in the fall, winter and spring.  Individual and Family Memberships are available.

The Past Season

This past season, we had over 90 members including our Juniors.  Members ranging in age from 9 to over 70 played in leagues scheduled in the daytime and evenings Monday through Friday.  Several unofficial ‘pickup leagues’ kept our courts busy during unscheduled periods.  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.

Junior Program

The Junior Program was, once again, extremely successful.  We would like to thank Paula, Mike, Whitney and all the other helpers for all of the time and energy they put in with the Juniors in this past season.  I would also like to congratulate the Junior Members who took part in the program, laying the groundwork for a bigger league in the future and setting the groundwork for a healthy lifestyle.  The program will reconvene in the fall of 2016.    A maximum of  18 players will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis.
