Cardio Tennis, one of the fastest growing tennis programs in the U.S., has updated its Training Courses for tennis providers, adding a Level 2 for professional education for tennis and fitness pros.
The number of people playing tennis in the U.S. and the number of tennis “play occasions” increased in 2015, according to the latest figures released by the Tennis Industry Association (TIA) and U.S. Tennis Association (USTA), which were part of the Physical Activity Council (PAC) Annual Participation Study.
Tennis participation for 2015 was generally stable, showing slight increases overall. Year-end stats for tennis equipment shipments and sales, however, were mixed.
More than 300 tennis industry leaders, who gathered recently at the 2016 State of the Tennis Industry Forum held in Miami, heard about the future of the sport, including key information and statistics that pointed out the challenges and opportunities tennis faces today.
Cardio Tennis played to full courts at the PTR Symposium in February and at a key Cardio Tennis Training Course held after the PTR event on Hilton Head Island, S.C.
