Difference: Platform Tennis and Paddle Tennis

This page states Paddle Tennis is different from Platform tennis:

Is this played anywhere around here?

There is a difference, however the paddles used to play are the same. Read this article that should clarify things for you.

I find this interesting. So I guess this game should be referred to as Platform Tennis.....not "Paddle" as many say. What makes me laugh is that people think that paddle is "ping pong". I've always known ping pong as just that -- "ping pong".
