Paddle Tennis

Paddle tennis at The Pacific Club has long been an island tradition, and the Club features four paddle tennis courts.

The game is played with similar rules as tennis but on a smaller court. At The Pacific Club, a regular tennis ball is used (a deflated ball is traditional on the East Coast), a special paddle is used instead of a tennis racket, and serving is done overhand.

Classes are held weekly and competition matches are available at every skill level. For the avid player, The Pacific Club holds semiannual Invitational, Masters Tournaments, a Queens of the Court Tournament and an annual Club Championship in the fall.
