With the launch of playtennis.com, it is more important than ever to get your tennis provider information posted or up-to-date in the GrowingTennis System managed by the TIA. The tennis industry is driving consumers to playtennis.com so they can quickly and easily find places to play, search for tennis retailers, connect with tennis teaching professionals, and find tennis programming in their area. The key portal to get listed on this new consumer site is through the GrowingTennis System at www.GrowTennis.com.
Each month, the data in the GrowingTennis System is "queried" by consumers nearly 4 million times through a variety of ancillary tennis websites such as playtennis.com, tennis.com, USTA.com, and more.
GrowTennis.com for Facilities and Program Providers
For tennis facilities and program providers, the GrowingTennis System is designed to allow users to input nearly all essential business and program data that a tennis consumer would be searching for.

For those new to the system, don't miss the opportunity to easily create FREE additional exposure for your tennis facility and/or programs.
GrowTennis.com for Retailers
Tennis retailers are key “touch points” for the tennis consumer. They provide the knowledge and expertise that consumers need and look for when buying equipment. Tennis retailers who post or update their information at GrowTennis.com will notice their information is then displayed on the "Retail Locator" of playtennis.com, 10andUnderTennis.com, and TennisIndustry.org. On your listing on the retail locator, consumers can distinguish what products and services you offer (such as stringing, demo racquets, shoes, apparel, etc.), view a map of your location, rate your retail business, and easily contact you via the email address and/or phone number you provide in the GrowingTennis System. Make sure your tennis retail information is listed and up-to-date so consumers know what products and services you offer and are able to easily get in touch with and find out about your business.
