Welcome to the 2016-2017 Season!

Paddle Enthusiasts,

The Winnetka Platform Tennis Club would like to say thank you to all of our returning and new members for making the WPTC by far the biggest platform tennis program in the country!

This 2016-17 season the club will carry six women’s and twenty-two men’s travel teams. The women’s teams have already begun team practices and are heading into their third week of match play while the men’s teams just wrapped up their first week of competitive play.

Our new Women’s Monday Night League is off to a great start. The in-house league’s fall session is supported by eighty-four new members. Every Monday night from 7:30-10:00 six out of the seven teams compete against each other. The winter session will start in January.

Winnetka paddle is stronger than ever!

Special thanks to long time WPTC member Steve Hester and his business Hester Painting and Decorating for their generous donation of a top of the line gas Weber grill for the paddle hut. Feel free to visit their website at www.Hesterdecorating.com to thank them for the BBQ gift. Let the grilling begin!

Also, special thanks to the WPD for providing the concrete work, gas line and landscaping!
