Dick Squires updates his classic book “How to Play Platform Tennis”

Dick Squires was one of the great promotors of the game who helped take the game on a growth spurt never seen before or since.

“Mr. Paddle” wrote about the game, published books on the game, produced instruction films about the game, built courts, endorsed attire, conducted clinics and dreamt up and found sponsors for an exciting new tournament that CBS Sports televised for its “Sports Spectacular” show. He also opened the first commercial platform tennis facility on a roof-top in New York City.
