Platform Tennis
From October to April, many members transition from tennis to platform tennis (commonly referred to as “paddle”). Platform tennis is a popular winter sport and a great way to get fresh air and competition as the temperatures drop. We offer a variety of programs, leagues, and activities to facilitate member involvement.  Programs include club tournaments, competitive teams, instructional activities, and open paddle for men, women, and juniors.

Inter-Club Teams
URTC participates in men’s and women’s inter-club and state leagues througout the fall and winter. Women's teams play on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Men's teams play on Saturday and Sunday mornings. For information about joining a team contact: 201-447-1503
