The Mt. Lebanon Platform Tennis Association (MLPTA) and the municipality operate as partners in the maintenance and upkeep of the hut and courts. The municipality is primarily responsible for the ongoing maintenance of the courts, such as lighting, broken snowboards and steps, etc.
The MLPTA is primarily responsible for the daily upkeep of the hut and provides shovels, brooms, a sweeper, garbage bags, cleaning supplies, paper products, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, etc. The MLPTA and the municipality share the cost of any major improvements to the courts, such as new screens and deck resurfacing.
Platform tennis, also known as paddle tennis, is thriving in Mt. Lebanon. Mt. Lebanon fields a number of teams in both the men's and women's Western Pennsylvania Platform Tennis Association (WPPTA) leagues. If you are interested in the game of paddle, email: firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. If you would like to purchase paddles or balls, they are available through the Tennis Center, located just down the walkway from the paddle courts.
