Letter from the APTA

April 20, 2023


Dear APTA members,

We had quite a season and I am so proud of everything the APTA has accomplished on behalf of all our members. Here are some of the highlights from the 2022/2023 season.

  • APTA membership grew to 31,887 members, up 10.4% and more than double our membership in 2016.


  • There were 272 APTA sanctioned tournaments with 443 different draws hosted by APTA Live Scoring or Paddlescores league sites.

  • Team Nationals was our biggest event yet with 410 women and 350 men playing in New Jersey and Chicago.
  • The Husband/Wife Nationals and Mixed Nationals had 64 and 60 teams, respectively, the biggest draws in years.

We have our annual board meeting in May and will continue to focus on growing the game and providing increased value to you, our members. Look out for a Zoom invite to the “Board Meeting Summary” call where we will discuss our initiatives for the 2023/2024 season. Hope to see you on the call and, if not, on the courts next season.

Cheers, Tiernan
