Tournament Support

As a tournament director, you do a lot of the heavy lifting of the sport. You spend countless hours putting on the best tournaments you can, sometimes year after year, enthusiastically promoting platform tennis out of a passion for the sport and the community of players.

The APTA supports your efforts, and with the resources below we hope to make your job a little easier. We have gone to the best and most experienced tournament directors to build a library of information including advice, practical details and best practices.
