About the Try Tennis Promotion - Sign Up Now

The TIA, in conjunction with the USPTA and the PTR, is building on the success of the Try Tennis Free promotion in May of 2014 to launch another "Try Tennis Free Promotion" in September (leveraging consumer interest during the US Open) to get more players on your courts and into the game. Industry research shows that 65% of players who begin tennis in introductory programming continue with the sport! Getting consumers “hooked” on tennis by “trying” it is half the battle. As the game of a lifetime, we’re confident that if we can just get consumers “foot on the court,” that as an industry we’ll have a tremendous opportunity to grow our player base and ultimately, the number of frequent tennis players.

The Focus & How to Get Involved (see collateral materials below)

  1. Getting new players into the game by having them take an introductory lesson, clinic, or other instructional program, with a certified teaching professional
  2. Plugging the leaky bucket of participation, increasing player retention
  3. Providing an industry supported “entry program” and messaging for consumers wanting to try tennis
  4. You make the Rules! Type of "Try Tennis program" offered is up to you (i.e. Play Days, Cardio Tennis class or any other intro format, subject to availability, advanced reservations required, etc.). You can have them email, call, or even contact you directly when they find your information at PlayTennis.com.
