Platform tennis is one of the fastest growing sports at The Philadelphia Cricket Club, likely due to both its social nature and the ease with which beginners can pick up the sport. With heated courts, platform is a winter sport and offers members an opportunity to exercise and socialize outdoors during the colder months. The Clubís newly renovated platform tennis facility includes four courts, all lit for night play, and a Pavilion with an indoor/outdoor fireplace, two outdoor decks, and comfortable inside seating areas to complement a fully stocked bar.
In addition to menís and womenís interclub leagues and organized practices, clinics and private lessons are offered day and night, and Friday night socials are scheduled throughout the season. Club tournaments include menís, womenís and mixed championships. The Club also offers weekly junior clinics and coaches juniors to participate in Club tournaments, the Junior Philly Open and APTA Junior Nationals.
