About Paddle Tennis

The Italian Center offers a diverse Paddle Tennis Program from September through June. Our illuminated courts appeal to those who long for fresh air, exercise, competition and social events.

We have a wide range of activities geared toward this racquet sport which has re-emerged because of a heightened interest in recent years.  Our program includes social events, tournaments and round robin play within our own club. Additionally, our teams  compete within the Fairfield County Paddle Tennis League in the fall and winter and the Summer League.

Paddle Pros

The Italian Center Platform Tennis programming, clinics and tournaments are run by our pro, Alex Dias. Alex is a seasoned pro with extensive teaching and coaching experience. He is looking forward to leading an exciting and fun-filled season of paddle tennis to all interested members.

The IC Paddle Program

Our paddle program is available for all children, juniors, women and men who wish to participate. This exhilarating, fast-paced sport is open to beginners, as well as members who wish to develop their skills, and those who wish to play on a competitive level.

This year, we will offer group and private clinics for all levels of ability, as well as many fun social events and tournaments. For more information, please contact Hank Driver at or Jackie Cameron at or visit the Italian Center Platform Tennis Facebook page.
