      Our Tennis Director Dean Rudrud and his staff of USPTA Professionals offer programs for all ages and levels while maintaining a healthy pro/player ratio.

      We offer leagues, summer camps for kids, lessons, events, and tournaments. The mission of our tennis staff is to provide tennis instruction and play in an atmosphere of fun and camaraderie.

      Platform Tennis

      Platform Tennis is an American racquet sport enjoyed by people of all ages. It is the only racquet sport that players can enjoy outdoors year-round. Unlike tennis, platform tennis allows only one serve, the court is about 1/3 the size, and balls are allowed to be played off the screen that completely encloses the court. Mix up your winter workout routine at Lafayette Club with this fun, energetic outdoor sport.
