    I don't know what paddle tennis is. Is it like tennis tennis, with a paddle?

    Used to play a lot. Many country clubs have courts. Haven't played in years but it's definitely fun to play.

    Yeah, I'd like to take it up - as a lapsed tennis player, I can handle a racket fairly well, but not necessarily all the running. Although from what I hear, you run a goodly amount in paddle tennis as well.

    I was suprised how fun it is. never a tennis player, but we play then head to the bar if at night and the league stuff is cool. Meet new Jets fans every time we go somewhere to play. Main thing is the game is finesse vs power in tennis. Court is much smaller and you get one serve to get it in.
