Platform Tennis

Catch the fever! Platform Tennis is a great fall, winter and spring social activity played by men and women of all ages. Whatever your skill or fitness level, this easy-to-learn game provides a combination of outdoor exercise, concentration, athleticism and a lifetime of fun.

Primarily played with four people, Platform Tennis takes place on a mini, elevated tennis court with special paddles that differ in size and shape from tennis raquets. The Glen Ellyn Park District’s Platform Tennis facility features six courts and a modern Platform Tennis Hut that offers a great view of the games. A heating system keeps the deck ice free, allowing year-round play. Court lighting ensure players can continue to enjoy their game well after sunset. When you get cold, come inside, sit by the fire, and chat with friends!
