‘State of the Tennis Industry’ Slated for August

July 19, 2011

The Tennis Industry Association plans to release a newly developed and revamped report in August designed to “help narrate the story of the tennis industry,” says TIA Executive Director Jolyn de Boer.

The new “State of the Industry” report will synthesize data from the past year that the TIA has collected through various surveys and research studies into an easy-to-read format that expands on one of the TIA’s trademark annual publications, “The Tennis Marketplace.”

“The ‘State of the Industry’ report will take a top-level view of a variety of trends and segments in the industry and weave it into a comprehensive ‘story’ that will show how interconnected this industry is,” de Boer says.
