Introduction to Paddle
Are you a tennis player who has never played paddle? Are you a beginner player? Would you like to try out this very addicting, fun and social sport you can play outdoors all winter long? Don’t miss out on the winter fun at URTC!
Join us for "Intro to Paddle" sessions throughout the season where you can play with experienced paddle players from URTC and also learn from our Paddle Pro, Kevin Schmitt. Our first Intro to Paddle sessions are planned for Thursday September 24th and Wednesday September 30th from 7-9pm.
Sign up individually or with a friend.
To sign up please email Brad Matthews at email@example.com or John Oros at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In early October we will be hosting a new member mixed paddle round robin where you will get to play with different members and learn the game better.
Men’s Platform Tennis Teams
Would you like to play on a competitive URTC Men’s paddle team? If so, let us know! URTC participates in both the New Jersey Men’s Interstate Paddle League (MIPL) where we have two A teams, as well as C, D, E and F teams that can support all skill levels that play Sunday mornings from December through March. We also have 3 State League teams for those advanced players that play in October through early December.
Any members, who are not already on a team but who would like to participate, are asked to contact Brad Matthews, Men’s Paddle Trustee, via email at email@example.com.
For those playing in the MIPL league league this year, you will need to pay the $35 APTA membership fee as well as the $25 MIPL fee individually on the MIPL website (https://mipl.tenniscores.com). You will not be able to play a match until you are registered and dues are paid.
We host a Men’s Member-Guest Tournament in late January and a Men's Member-Member Tournament in March/April (all dates TBD) with A and B flights.
Friday night paddle: Join us on selected Friday evenings for social paddle. Throughout the season, we will be gathering on selected Friday evenings (weather permitting) for mixed, men’s and women’s paddle, food and cheer. Like last year, we will have some paddle dinner events during the season as well. Details to follow!
