The Season So Far

This current season, we have over 75 members including several new members in each League.  Members ranging in age from just over 20 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 it is amazing to realize just what our bodies can tolerate.  

This year, we have had a reduced number of social “Scrambles” where we all have the opportunity of enjoying even more “Paddle”. The indoor portion of the tournaments were restricted to COVID rules. We are looking forward to future scrambles where we can better enjoy the food and camaraderie.  Usually, the official season ends with the Club Championships held in April.  We will have to wait and see how this season plays out.
