August TIA Webinar Learning Series Announced

The TIA’s Webinar Learning Series will continue into August with educational webinars that touch on many segments of the tennis industry. A number of the webinar topics for this series have been adapted from presentations at the Tennis Owners & Managers Conference that was held in Charleston, S.C., this past April.

In June/July, more than 500 tennis providers registered for TIA webinars, and another 800-plus providers accessed the webinar recordings, available at Last year’s Webinar Learning Series, which also followed the TOM Conference, generated nearly 1,500 total registrations.

The PTR and USPTA offer continuing education credits for those who attend the webinars. For more information and to see a list of upcoming webinars, visit
