We head into 2020 with some exciting news; we have signed a 30-year lease with the Cleveland Rowing Foundation, and put down a deposit with Reilly Green Mountain to build four beautiful paddle courts.
After months of hard work, the Flats Platform Tennis Center is becoming a reality. We will break ground on northeast Ohio’s first public platform tennis center in the first quarter of 2020.
Just minutes from downtown, this facility will add an exciting new facet to the Flat’s vibrant renaissance. It will also help introduce the game to urban youth by hosting Cleveland’s first Platform Tennis Youth Mentoring Program.
As of December 2019, we've reached the halfway point of our fundraising goal of $600,000! We've come this far mostly through individuals who love this sport and want to support its growth in northeast Ohio. We've also secured the largest ever grant / loan combination from the American Platform Tennis Association and will serve as the template for growing paddle in urban areas across the country. Donate now to become a Founding Donor, and be recognized for years to come as an early supporter of the Flats Platform Tennis Center!
The mission of the Cleveland Platform Tennis Foundation (CPTF) is to advance platform tennis growth and development in Northeast Ohio by increasing public access and awareness, supporting meaningful lifelong engagement in the sport, and encouraging a cross generational social environment.
