Originally founded in July 2009, with a redesign and project refocus in 2014, after closure in February 2017, it reopened in May 2017, Plat Project is a website dedicated to chronicling the tennis world by calendar month. The project has a few notability standards for inclusion for tennis players.

The goal of the original project was to have 10,000 articles on the wiki before closure, having accumulated 9,589 while in operation, the focus was also on the open era. The current focus is still on the open era starting with the present week and chronicling backwards to January 2008, a former focus of 2,000 articles was set after the reopening which was accomplished on 3 August 2017.
