How important is to run a program for adult players?
Updated: Jan 22, 2021
In our opinion very. I don’t see a reason why any tennis club would not offer a program for adults. Tennis as well as being a great physical workout, is also:
a non-impact sport
a great way to meet people and spend time with friends
suitable for all ages and skill levels. Whatever your level, you can find someone of a similar ability to play with
helpful to reduce stress
not dependent on youth or strength – you can play for a lifetime or start the game at any age.
There are also many health benefits and that’s why is not really difficult to get adults to participate in our club programs. Now from the cub perspective, by offer some adult programs the club can benefit from that as well, for example:
More hours for the coaches with possibility of extra private lessons
Courts occupancy, you can offer late night classes, early mornings, lunch hours when normally the courts would be empty
