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.
As Cardio Tennis has grown in popularity to the tennis consumer base so has the structure of Cardio Tennis program delivery. The TIA is making a concerted effort to ensure consistent and quality Cardio Tennis programming is delivered at tennis facilities across the United States and internationally. Most recently, online functionality has been added to help tennis facilities and teaching pros manage their classes and increase their revenue.
One of the key introductions for the Cardio Tennis program for 2012 is the transition from "Official Sites" to "Authorized Providers." Tennis facilities and/or teaching pros will be required to maintain instructors on staff who are current with Cardio Tennis training by having completed a structured 7 hour in-class and on-court Cardio Tennis training course within the past three years. To become an Authorized Provider of Cardio Tennis a tennis facility or USPTA or PTR certified tennis professional must complete a brief online application and questionnaire and submit the recurring $100 annual payment for use of the program which includes benefits found at this link.
Benefits to the overall Cardio Tennis program of the new Authorized Provider structure is additional consistency and quality for the consumer experience from program to program. Authorized Providers also receive many new and expanded benefits for the Cardio Tennis program, including access to the Cardio Tennis Invitation System, which allows Authorized Providers to create prioritized digital marketing invitations to make it easier to fill classes and generate more revenue. Furthermore, the new Cardio Tennis Invitation System allows providers to process enrollments and collect class fees online directly through the CardioTennis.com website, reducing the administrative overhead associated with implementing new tennis programming. Priority listings are also given to facilities and professionals who become Authorized Providers on the CardioTennis.com consumer searches.
"As the Cardio Tennis program has grown and evolved, so has our training, delivery, and technology structure," says TIA Executive Director Jolyn de Boer. "We want to ensure consumers get the best experience possible and that we are providing the tools and resources necessary to help our provider network grow their participation in their classes."
