Columbus Open
Columbus Open 2014

Plain City, OH
Brian Heil and the Elysium Tennis Club resurrected the women's portion of the Columbus Open. This is Brian's recap: The Columbus Open was played on Friday February 7th and was a huge success. We had 24 teams battle it out in single digit temperature with the team of Budde-Glassmeyer eventually prevailing 6-0,6-3 vs Gilbert-Lippy. The ladies all had a great day filled with competition, camaraderie, food and drinks! Thanks to all the staff at Elysium for putting on a great tourney and special thanks to Worthington Hills Country Club for the use of their courts. We look forward to next years tourney and gaining PCQ and possibly NRT status.

PPTA Growing the Game

Las Vegas, NV
The recent much-talked-about platform tennis event in Las Vegas saw the “paddle” community come together as never before to promote the sport in a new and dynamic way.  Commercial sponsors Viking Athletics and Paddlepro.com came through with prize donations as part of a raffle run by P.P.T.A. pros.  Proceeds from the raffle were used to finance air, hotel, prizes, and other travel expenses for the pros as well as cover the cost of give-aways and awards used during the event.  David Dodge of Premier Platform assembled the court in Las Vegas and covered all his own expenses in the process.  The A.P.T.A. paid the site fee and staffed the booth from Thursday-Sunday and acted as great ambassadors of the game.view full report
