Spring and Summer Leagues

We’ll see you on the courts in 2022!!

SUMMER PADDLE OPEN PLAY

We’ll see you back on the courts in SUMMER of 2022!

Paddle has an extremely fun geometric quality embedded into the structure of the sport. Unlike tennis, once the ball hits the court surface it can be played off the screens until it hits the surface a second time. This gives players in the back-court ample time to play a shot.
The result?
A much more dynamic and strategic version of tennis with the potential for longer, more creative points.

Aside from the unique physical properties of the sport, there are many other reasons to play paddle. It is one of the only sports that can be played outdoors during the winter!  Snow and ice are cleared using heaters located underneath the raised platform surface. 

It is also well heralded for the social atmosphere it provides as there are many leagues and events throughout the season.

We will offer the following Paddle Programs:

  • LESSONS & DRILLS
  • OPEN PLAY
  • RESERVED COURT TIMES
  • LEAGUES & TOURNAMENTS
  • PARTIES & EVENTS

The regular paddle season runs from the beginning of fall through the end of winter but spring and summer leagues will also be available.
