What is paddle?
Otherwise known as “platform tennis,” paddle is a popular racquet sport played played primarily in cooler weather, on an elevated aluminum deck. The court is surrounded by fencing which allows play off the walls, as in racquetball and squash. Picket Post has one of the top paddle programs in the Philadelphia area, at a very reasonable membership cost, with a spacious “hut” perfect for warming up after a game, socializing with friends or watching the action on our courts. Members enjoy social events, clinics, and tournaments for all skill levels.
