In its efforts to grow the game in all regions and at all levels, the APTA is heading south to hold an exhibition in Atlanta, Georgia, on Saturday, January 15. The exhibition will take place at Ansley Golf Club from 10 AM-2PM. The event will feature top players showcasing their talents, as well as an opportunity for locals to hit a few balls in an introductory clinic and round robin. Enthusiasm for platform tennis is high in Atlanta thanks to two existing courts at two clubs and a large number of experienced players from more traditional platform tennis areas who now call Atlanta home. With a strong foothold like this the APTA hopes that Atlanta will be one of the next major growth areas for the sport. It is also hoped that an APTA-sanctioned tournament will be added in Atlanta in 2005-06 as the sport grows there.
