Paddle tennis is a game adapted from tennis and played for over a century. It is the only racquet sport that players can enjoy outdoors in cold weather. This unique appeal attracts people who desire fresh air, competition, and social engagement – all on a chilly winter’s day or night.
The heating system melts ice off the aggregate deck surface, allowing you to play outdoors in all weather conditions. Our courts are lighted, so you can play the game day or night.
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 ball is used. The same court is used for both singles and doubles, with doubles being the dominant form of play. The smaller court size adds a strong emphasis and advantage to net play and creates a fast and reaction-based game.
