The Chicago Tribune writes about platform tennis, reporting that some players call the game "King Kong Ping-Pong". Must be something that someone named Biff or Buffy came up with, eh?
Along with that insight, the Trib repeats an oft-spouted claim about Winnetka being the biggest paddle program. We'll see what Factcheck.org has to say about this one day, but in the mean time I'd point out that:
Hinsdale Park District - 8 courts, Winnetka Park District - 6 courts
HPTA - 700 members, Winnetka - 325 members
