New Jersey Women's Platform Tennis League

PLATFORM TENNIS ETIQUETTE

Every player - especially new ones - should familiarize themselves with the rules of the NJWPTL and the APTA. Because our players also compete in other paddle (and tennis) leagues, they need to be aware that rules may differ from league to league. Since the rules can't cover ever situation that arises in platform tennis, good sportsmanship and honesty are essential components of enjoyable league play. These etiquette guidelines are offered in that spirit!
