Tennis in the South may never be the same again.  For all of you traditionalists out there, there’s a new game in town and it goes by the name of “Paddle” aka-Platform Tennis (well, it’s not really all that new but it is new to Charleston).

For those of you who are not familiar, think Tennis meets Cage Match.  Think more fun than a barrel, no scratch that, cage of monkeys.


The folks at Rhino Sports Group were proud to be a part of a number of “firsts” this weekend at the LTP Tennis Club of Charleston.

Firsts include:

  • First Paddle tournament in Charleston
  • First Paddle tournament held at LTP Tennis Club of Charleston and their 2 brand spanking new platform tennis courts
  • First tournament were Rhino Platform Tennis Balls were played
  • First time, for many in attendance, to see Paddle played live.

Congratulations Jerry Albrikes and staff at the LTP Tennis Club of Charleston for hosting the 1st Annual Men’s Low Country Classic of Charleston.
