Technological product innovations are impacting all sports and fitness activities, and tennis is no exception. The sport has always been one to embrace new materials and technologies as it continues to add to the 17.9 million U.S. tennis players in the U.S, based on research from the Tennis Industry Association (TIA).
The TIA’s new “Knowledge Base” will include a series of educational webinars this spring and summer that touch on many segments of the tennis industry. A number of the webinar topics for this “summer series” have been adapted from presentations at the Tennis Owners & Managers Conference that was held in Miami this past March.
The ninth annual TIA Tennis Forum will be Monday, Aug. 29, on the Ballroom level of the Grand Hyatt New York City, right before play begins at the 2016 US Open. To register, visit TennisIndustry.org/forum.
