Paddle, or Platform Tennis, was born in the early 1930s at the Fox Meadow Club in Westchester County and enthusiasm quickly grew for the sport at the Stamford Yacht Club. Our original two courts, constructed of wood and wire where the lower parking lot is now located, had decayed badly by the late 1940s, and were torn down.
Popular support caused the wooden courts to be rebuilt north of the tennis courts in 1968, and lights were added in1969. These were later replaced by the modern metal courts our avid members now play on throughout the winter months.
