Now, with more than 2,000 registered job seekers, and a constant "pool" of more than 1,000 jobs, the www.CareersInTennis.com website has become one of the "go to" sources for finding a career in the industry.

Even though some of the site’s exciting features are still being fine-tuned, check out PlayTennis.com’s redesign, as the site continues to see increased use by both consumers and providers. As the industry pools its resources to spread the message about playtennis.com, more than 100 million potential consumers could be reached!
