Platform Tennis (AKA Paddle Tennis). Platform Tennis is played on a court resembling a tennis court but one-third of the size and surrounded by a chicken wire fence which the ball can be played off of in competition. I have been playing Platform Tennis on a National level for over 10 years. With my partner, I currently hold a National Ranking of 7th place. I have played with and triumphed over some of the top players in the nation and have been instructed by a 12 time national champion. I can answer specific questions on rules and regulations, learning to play, where platform tennis can be played (regions, country clubs, public courts, etc.), strategy, type of equipment, entering tournaments, obtaining lessons, playing singles and/or doubles, becoming a member of the APTA, becoming a ranked player, etc.
Since signing up with AllExperts I have elevated my national ranking to #4. I'd like to win the National Championships and continue playing the sport for many, many years.
You only get one serve in Platform Tennis - and there are no lets on the serve!
