The tennis industry and PHIT America are joining forces to promote the sport of tennis and increase physical activity throughout the country. The TIA is encouraging any group that holds tennis events to designate PHIT KIDS as their designated charity to help increase awareness of efforts under way at PHIT America.
With summer approaching, and International Coaches Week upon us, this is a great time to grow your business and bring tennis to a new generation of youngsters.

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.

The tennis industry has promoted play on shorter 36-foot and 60-foot tennis courts for a number of years to help players of all ages get active, have fun and learn the game more easily. Now, the game of tennis played on 36- and 60-foot courts gets a major boost through the U.S. POP Tennis Association.
