We were first introduced to platform tennis by a good friend. Before our first time on the court, we ran out and bought brand new paddles. We were all in without having stepped on a court. After the first hour of play, we were hooked.
From our first time on the court, and to this day, we can't get enough of the sport. We have joined the ranks of those that yammer on about paddle to people that are utterly disinterested. You know, "those non-paddle people."
We decided to channel our love and passion for paddle, and the pride we have for our hometown, to create PGH Paddle.
If you want to learn more, head over to our blog to read about how we came up with our branding and what's on the horizon for PGH Paddle.
If you're new to the site, be sure to sign up for our newsletter.
We'll see you on the courts!
MEET THE TEAM
BETTER PADDLE PLAYER
Our mission is focused on growing the sport of platform tennis and strengthening the paddle community. To achieve our mission we will focus on a few key areas:
Creating more playing opportunities
Increasing mixed play
Unifying under one brand
STRENGTHEN THE COMMUNITY
We believe the best way to build a strong paddle community is connecting the players. The best way to meet and connect with other players is to get out and play socially. Through hosting events and providing player profiles we're connecting paddle players across the region.
GROW THE GAME
Growing the game requires focus in two main areas:
Introducing new players to the sport
Providing instruction to players
We're committed to connecting players with instructors to enhance the level of paddle being played. We encourage all of you to bring a friend to a casual day of play
