Platform Tennis League is excited to announce that Xenon Paddle will be a sponsor of our 2021-22 leagues. We will use the Xenon ball for the Fall/Winter League. I am a fan of the brighter color and extended durability. For this year's ball, Xenon has softened the core for better playability in cold temperatures.
In only their third year, Xenon has already earned a reputation for having some of the best equipment in the game. Five of the Eight APTA Nationals finalists from last year will be using their paddles this season. Click Xenon Paddle for more information about their platform tennis products.
