Cardio Tennis® has become one of the fastest growing fitness trends in the U.S., and now the program is expanding, with more benefits and services to providers so they can continue to bring a quality, fun fitness-oriented tennis workout to more consumers.
Recently, Cardio Tennis Manager Michele Krause and members of the National Cardio Tennis Speakers Team delivered high-energy Cardio Tennis Training Courses in Canada and the San Francisco area to nearly 100 tennis professionals.
For the third straight year, participation in Cardio Tennis topped more than 1 million players in the U.S. The popular health, fitness and tennis program, which was created in 2005, is now delivered in nearly 1,800 facilities and parks throughout the U.S. and in more than 30 countries.
This spring and summer Cardio Tennis® Manager Michele Krause, along with members of the National Cardio Tennis Speakers' Team, will be delivering Cardio Tennis Training courses and TRX Cardio Tennis Pilot Training Courses across the country. These 7-8 hour courses are designed to teach the fundamentals of Cardio Tennis and everything you need to know to make it a sucess at your facility.
With the soft launch of the PlayTennis.com consumer site, all tennis providers—teaching pros, facilities, retailers, tennis organizations and more—should go to GrowTennis.com now to update or add their information, so consumers can find them. It’s a free and easy way to help drive traffic to your business—and to help consumers get into the game and play more tennis.
Cardio Tennis® has just kicked it up a notch—with opportunities for an even more comprehensive full-body workout. The Tennis Industry Association has partnered with TRX Suspension Training® to bring the innovative training system to the courts with TRX Cardio Tennis, and workshops for tennis providers are under way.
Cardio Tennis® was a big part of the PTR International Tennis Symposium this past February in Orlando, FL.
Cardio Tennis® Manager Michele Krause was honored with the TIA/PTR Commitment to the Industry award and several members of the Cardio Tennis® National Speakers Team were present to help deliver morning TRX Cardio Tennis workouts. PTR teaching professionals also participated in a competition of Cardio Tennis® feeding skills.
It’s a very simple message—“Play tennis!”—yet its impact throughout this industry can be huge. The new PlayTennis.com has soft-launched to consumers, with the full launch expected in May, as a site where everyone in the industry can send consumers and players to encourage them to get in the game and to play more tennis.
At the recent PTR Symposium, the Professional Tennis Registry announced Jorge Andrew has been named President of its Board of Directors for a three-year term. Andrew, who accepted the reins from outgoing President Jean Mills, is the first Latino to serve as President of a major tennis organization in the U.S.
