APTA to raise money for new courts.
3-19--2004

The APTA is planning a series of events to raise this money. One idea is a series of golf outings, as many APTA members are tied into some of the most beautiful Country Clubs in the nation. A number of our member clubs are home to the top 50 golf courses!

GROWING THE GAME – IT TAKES MONEY & INVOLVEMENT

The American Platform Tennis Association (APTA) is dedicated to growing Platform Tennis, all over the country and at all levels. To this end, we have three key objectives:

1. Public Paddle Facilities: Ensure that more public facilities are constructed both in areas that platform tennis already exists as well as in new locations. At present there are a number of major cities where public facilities are either rare or completely absent. In order to facilitate growth, the APTA is committed to focusing our efforts on this situation.

2. National Interclub Championships: Offer all levels of interclub play the chance to compete for a national team championship. We kicked off this initiative in March 2004 and plan to expand upon the concept next year with more involvement from across the country

3. Junior Paddle: Offer Junior paddle tournaments and clinics in all parts of the country. Next year we are hoping to augment the current schedule of Junior events with additional tournaments in the Midwest.

In order to achieve our goals, we need to raise funds to help pay/subsidize the associated costs. Two new paddle courts can cost up to $130,000.

The APTA is planning a series of events to raise this money. One idea is a series of golf outings, as many APTA members are tied into some of the most beautiful Country Clubs in the nation. A number of our member clubs are home to the top 50 golf courses!

We are looking for paddle enthusiasts to help run golf outings in your area. Anyone interested should e mail Mark Fischl at mafischl@platformtennis.org.

Working together, we can and will grow this sport we all love! Let’s start with this fund raising effort. Thanks!
