The Village Club of Sands Point Platform Tennis Program
2013-2014 Platform Tennis season!
Whether you are new to the game or a seasoned pro the paddle program at The Village Club offers something for everyone. For those of you unfamiliar with platform tennis it is an outdoor racquet sport generally played in cool or cold weather, combining the best elements of tennis with racquetball and squash. There is plenty of social play, social events, round robins, and team play. Lessons and clinics are available offering paddle technique, rules, strategy, and match play from the beginner to the tournament level.
The Teaching Staff
The program will be headed up by Liz Jaffe who is currently ranked #5 in the nation and Anton Mavrin, who is currently ranked #27 in the nation. The social and inviting atmosphere down at the courts will make any player feel welcome.
Leagues and Social Play
Social play will take place during the week and weekends both during the day and at night. If you are interested in competing on a team there will be a men's division 4 and 5 team competing in the LIPTA league on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
