A new 4-court public platform tennis facility will open in Cleveland this year. The Flats Platform Tennis Center will be the first new facility built in the city in over 30 years. The Cleveland Platform Tennis Foundation (CPTF) has a mission focused on "public" awareness and diverse participation development. The $600,000 project has been primarily funded by local players and corporate donations. For more:
Three 2-hour time slots have been added at Maketewah CC. We can now accept 72 players for Fall/Winter Session #1. 20 players are currently registered. Updates:
Due to the complications around gathering this summer, we have decided to cancel the Spring/Summer League.
Credit for Spring Players:
Players who registered for the Spring League have an $80 credit towards a future league.
Our next league is Fall/Winter Session #1. This league is on Thursday nights and runs from October 1 to December 17. For details & registration with the $80 credit applied click: 2020-21 Fall/Winter Session #1 (w/ $80 Spring Credit).
The Spring/Summer League remains suspended. A decision on whether to complete the session will be made by August 18. Enrolled players will be notified of changes.
The COVID-19 related Ohio Stay at Home order was extended until May 1. This means Spring League play cannot resume before Thursday, May 7. Play won't resume until the order is lifted and gatherings of 20+ people are deemed low risk. If play resumes this Spring/Summer, we will start with the 9 weeks remaining in the Spring session.
March 26, April 2 & April 9
Spring League play is cancelled for the next three Thursday nights due to the Ohio Department of Health's "Stay at Home" Order related to the coronavirus outbreak.
April 16 is the earliest we could resume, but as long as there is a "stay at home" order and/or recommendations to keep gatherings under 30 people, the Spring League will not resume play.
Completion of Season
At whatever date we resume, there will be 9 weeks remaining in the "Spring" season. Everyone will be kept up to date and will be notified when we can resume play.
45 players are signed up and we are full. Play is on Thursday nights at Glendale Lyceum with 6:30 and 8:00/8:30 starts. This is a 12-week session running from March 5 through May 21. This serves as session #1 of the 24-week Spring/Summer league.
