History: The Essex Platform Tennis Club was established in 1974 as a not-for-profit corporation. Originally, the club had two courts; a year later a warming hut and spectator deck were added. Burgeoning membership necessitated the addition of a third court in 2005. A much improved warming hut replaced the old one in 2008 and a fourth court was added in 2011.
Governance: The club is governed by a Board of Directors and its shareholders.
Membership: The four forms of membership are shareholder, senior, annual, and young adult.
The Season and Programs: Our primary playing season runs from October 1st through April 30th. The club offers instruction and clinics, social events and tournaments for all levels of play.
