Platform Tennis

The Paddle Program at Kenwood continues to grow as more tennis players and golfers take up the game.  Last year we had outstanding participation in league play, events and socials.  Paddle is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and make the most of your Kenwood experience during the winter months.
If you have not played paddle in the past but are considering getting started this year, please contact the pro staff and we will get you involved.  Paddle is much easier to pick up than tennis, and the strokes needed to play paddle are very similar and complimentary to those needed to play tennis. 
The season will begin in mid-September and run through mid-March with a break over the holidays.  Whether you want to play on a team or attend weekly clinics, the pro staff can steer you in right direction.  There are drills for men on Thursday evenings as well as Saturday mornings and drop in drills are available for ladies during the week.  Now is the time for current players to round up your friends and introduce them to this great game.  We have entry level teams for both men and women and are always open to growing the sport! 

2019 -2020 Adult Paddle Programs


Preseason Camps in September
Kick off the season with a refresher course in basic paddle strategies while getting plenty of repetition to help you find your game quickly.  The pro staff will incorporate all aspects of the game during the two camp sessions.  New players are welcome and encouraged to do one or both of the Introduction Camps.  We are excited to get new players involved in the game and ready to join our entry-level teams.
