Grow the Game


One of the APTA’s missions is to grow the sport of platform tennis in all areas of the country. We work towards this goal by providing assistance to facilities and directors who may be interested in learning if platform tennis is a good fit for their public-access club, park district, or country club. We provide resources for:

  1. Understanding the sport of platform tennis + promotional materials.
  2. New and growing facilities and construction, including financial planning.
  3. Finance assistance through our Grants and Loans program.

If you want to grow the sport in your area, please contact us today for assistance. We are here to help you every step of the way and urge you to take advantage of the resources on this page. Email us at

Start here if the game is new to you!
