will be hosting its second photo contest. We are looking for the
most interesting, funny, intense, scenic and creative pictures
that have been taken (or will be taken) of platform tennis. What
is a "platform tennis oriented photo?" Simply stated,
any photo that has something to do with platform tennis, such
as a nice action shot of someone lobbing the ball, a great diving
save, a side shot of a team looking mean with their paddles and
ready to play and anything in general with someone holding a paddle
on a platform tennis court.
grand prize, and only prize to be given to the winner of this
contest will receive a 22" x 29" photo print of Fox
Meadow oil painting by Robert Strickler. This will be given only
to the person who had taken the photo, none of the participants
or models in the photo will be given the prize. The winner and
the participants or models in the photo will gain paddlepro.com
fame as thousands of platform tennis players will view the picture.
