About the Club

The Winnetka Platform Tennis Club (WPTC) works to promote and develop platform tennis in the community and serves over 300 members. The WPTC is the largest user of the Park District facility, accounting for over 80 percent of the court time used. Our programs range from social to competitive. There are men’s and women’s teams, tournaments, social functions, and mixed couple events. The WPTC encourages new members to get involved in these exciting programs. If there is a wait list for new club members, a Park District resident who expresses an interest in joining before has priority over a non-resident.

WPTC members are automatically members of the American Platform Tennis Association. Check the APTA website, www.platformtennis.org, and the North Shore Women’s Platform Tennis League (NSWPTL) at www.nspaddle@nulltheramp.net. The website for Chicago Paddle Tennis Men and Women is www.reveregroup.com/paddle.

Women’s Teams

The WPTC proudly sponsors approximately fourteen women’s teams in the NSWPTL. Women’s team practices begin mid-September. League play begins mid-October and runs through March. Teams were formed last spring, but space may be available on the lower team. Subs are always needed at every level. Season membership required. For more information, contact Holly Kawula at hkawula@nullwinnetkapaddle.com.

Men’s Teams

There are approximately twenty-two men’s teams participating in the Men’s Chicago Platform Tennis League. The men’s team practices begin in mid-September. League play begins in October and concludes in March. Teams will be formed at the beginning of the season with spaces available at all levels. Season membership required. Men’s teams pay an additional $100 Food and Ball Fee. For more information, contact the men’s committee at mensteams@nullwinnetkapaddle.com.
