About: Paddle Tennis is a game that looks like a cross between ping-pong and tennis. The court looks like a scaled down tennis court and the rules are the same as tennis as well. The racquets resemble large ping pong paddles.  The Venice Beach Paddle Tennis Tournament is widely regarded as one of the toughest and best Paddle Tennis tournaments in the World to win, because the Venice Beach Paddle Tennis recreational facility is where most of the top professional players live and practice their games year round.  Several tournaments are held at our local courts throughout the year and local resident Scott Freedman has been considered one of the World’s best for over two decades.  Kent Seto, Doug Kolker and Daryl Lemon are also some of the names to know in Paddle Tennis.

Scotty Freedman credentials: Scotty Freedman has played Paddle Tennis for 39 years, and has  won the most championships in Paddle Tennis sport’s history.  191 in all, too many to list.

What do I love about padde tennis:  I love the fact that people of all different skill levels and abilities and levels of play can think and understand the game of Paddle Tennis at their respective levels of play exactly like i think and do the game, playing the game  at the games top level like i do is entirely different.  Venice beach paddle tennis courts are an eclectic mix of people from all different backgrounds, be it unemployed and hanging at the beach everyday or the richest of the rich in Los Angeles, they all have “ONE COMMON GOAL” they love the game of paddle tennis.
