Platform Tennis

The Platform Tennis Group has often been described as the friendliest group in Sun City West.  Four courts are available at the Memo’s Bistro Tennis Complex.  Platform tennis is played on a 22 ft by 44 ft court which is enclosed by a fence.  It is played with smaller composite paddles and a rubber sized tennis ball, provided free by the club. 

It is easy to learn; instruction is available and new players are always welcomed.  All skill levels of play are available and it is an ideal sport for tennis players who no longer desire to run and cover the much larger tennis court.  Members meet Monday & Tuesday; Thursday through Saturday at the First Session (see Tennis below for First Session starting times as they vary); and on Wednesdays at 4:00 pm  Paddles and balls are available for new players to borrow.
